Sundown Mountain

  I was skiing down the right ride slopes one day last winter when I fell and hurt my leg. The rescue guys came rushing within seconds to help. Those guys are really on top of things. Says Ricky.

Sundown is great, I love it here. All the great runs and all the nice people you bump into. Says Paul.

The 475 foot height difference is unsurprisingly not that much to boast about, but all the other good characteristics of Sundown Mountain compensate
    for it. Sundown Mountain has a much lower than average part of red and black ski runs and a much higher than average percentage of easy runs. The 7 ski lifts here make for a relaxing ride up the hill. Sundown Mountain has a fairly
small array of runs and an acceptable amount of different ski lifts. Every winter this ski resort gets 4 feet of snow, and that doesn’t sound like loads, but it's relatively all right. The nearest ski resort featuring a more sky-scraping elevation difference is 67 miles away. Having a skiable terrain of 55 acres, it's incredibly friendly and small-size. Sundown Mountain gets blanketed by less snowfall than the local average every snow season. This is a standard size  
ski hill boasting a roughly average drop when compared to other mid west ski resorts. You'll come across many skiers from Dubuque here. The wintertime in Iowa is so pretty for snowboarding or skiing. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but you'd better reserve previous to going as these hotels fill up rapidly. The 20 runs at this ski area are great.
