Sundown Mountain Skiing Is A Must When In Iowa!

For those visiting Iowa anytime soon, don’t forget to add Sundown Mountain on your list to try things!

Since Sundown Mountain offers a variety of challenging skiing and snowboarding terrain in Dubuque, Iowa; it is a family’s favorite destination to explore during their vacation.

One can enjoy skiing at the various trails that are offered. Whilst skiing, one can admire the beauty of nature and the serene surroundings that are simply ethereal. From the top of the scenic ski hill one can enjoy the view of three states and the Mississippi River valley too.

The experience offers a whopping 475-foot vertical drop, which guarantees an experience of total exuberance! With the terrain cut out of an old cedar forest that's spread over 45 acres - this place has a lot to offer.

Sundown Mountain offers a total of 21 trails. The trails differ from each other on the aspect of difficulty. For instance 30% of the trails are of the easiest kind, 60% are more complicated, and 10% would be considered complex.

The key to enjoying a skiing trip, however, is to take care of yourself. After traveling, the fatigue takes over and controls the body; this could be a horrible time to set out to ski. Instead people should maybe arrive a day earlier, rest and rejuvenate, and get enough time to prepare themselves or the sudden physical activity. Even then you should probably do some warm-up exercises that can help make you more flexible and ready for the adventure!

Sundown Mountain offers its season members a 10% discount on Gift Shoppe purchases, $5 off Tuning Shop services and $5 off on Lessons. They also have this special offer that is brand new this year, where member’s can bring a beginner skier or snowboarder and introduce them to the sport for only $25! This offer includes Beginner Lesson, Lift and Rentals. That’s not all, the more friends/family members you introduce means the more chances that you and your friends/family will have at winning prizes from the National Bring-A-Friend Campaign and other great prizes from Sundown.

Sundown Mountain Resort is situated in Dubuque, Iowa and could be considered one of the finest Midwest ski resorts to take your family skiing and snowboarding this holiday! Since it is conveniently located in the heart of the Midwest, it attracts skiers and snowboarders of all abilities who can’t wait to experience their winter escapade.

Every skier or snowboarder can relate to this place no matter whether they are a beginner or experienced enthusiast. Age is literally just a number out here, since there are a variety of terrain and snowy fun for all ages available at Sundown Mountain! Sundown Mountain Resort is the only Midwest ski resort granted the NSAA Award of Excellence.

It offers state-of-the-art snowmaking and grooming as well as two mountain top lodges overlooking 100 square miles of countryside. Their highly qualified and enthusiastic staff is here to make every visitor’s experience memorable!
