About Sundown Mountain
Great surprises are sometimes found in the most unexpected places. Sundown Mountain is exactly the pleasant surprise that will greet you west of Dubuque, Iowa. It is snuggled in the Iowa bluffs near the Mississippi River. Who said Iowa is flat? Part of Sundown Mountain's special charm is its beautiful natural setting with runs that were carefully carved into the 45-acre mountainside to preserve the beauty of a century-old cedar forest. Five chairlifts serve 21 downhill slopes along with a new ski carpet to further enhance our learning area. The novice runs are gentle enough for even the most timid beginners, and yet the advanced slopes and mogul runs are tough enough to challenge experts. Sundown also boasts a 7-acre terrain park that includes a quad lift, new rails, fun-boxes, hips, waves, tabletops and a 100-yard half-pipe. Extensive snowmaking capabilities complement mother nature, providing a breathtaking winter wonderland from mid-November through mid-March.
