Fun Valley

  they just shut down..... Says an anonymous skier.

The nearest ski mountain in possession of a more towering drop is 98 miles away. With a 240 foot drop it's not the highest hill there is, but Fun Valley has so many other great attributes. This ski hill has a fairly small array of slopes and enough good ski lifts to serve them all. The terrain being 30 acres, it's more of a petite style ski area. The 5 great ski lifts here are amusing to catch a ride
    with. This ski area receives lower snowfall than the local average each season. This ski area has a much lower than average proportion of red and black slopes and a much higher than average fraction of intermediate or beginner slopes.
This ski area boasts 3 feet of good snow every winter, and that is not fantastically high, but it's okay. The ski run map of Fun Valley on this page of course says a thousand words. Fun Valley is a small ski mountain boasting a roughly average elevation difference when compared to other mid west ski mountains. The wintertime in Iowa is truly a great time of year for snowboarding and skiing. All the 14 trails here are picturesque. A wonderful workout and just hanging  
out with your skiing pals outdoes anything. This is a great ski resort for the whole family with a lot of intermediate or beginner slopes. Lots of skiers journey up here from Oskaloosa, in particular on the weekends. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, there are a small number of other wonderful places for that close at hand. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is so much fun the whole ski season. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit far from the base area if you want to stay overnight, and if you make reservations previous to going, you're all set.
