Ski Snowstar is a family-oriented, learn-to-ski area. Located in beautiful Coal Creek Valley, just five miles west of the Quad Cities in Andalusia, Ill., (just off Illinois Route 92). Take advantage of 25 acres of skiable terrain designed for all levels of skill. Two areas for beginners build confidence and technique. Big Dipper, Half Moon, North Star and Solar Spin offer intermediate skiers fun and a challenge, while more experienced skiers test their skills on five advanced runs.
