You don't need to be a skier to find this a place worth visiting. During ski season the lodge is warm and offers a great variety of quick food for lunch. Grab a hamburger and coffee and pull up a chair to watch the skiers zip past or the bluffs (bring some binoculars) for deer. Don't be too surprised to... More

Sundown is definitely your neighborhood ski resort with a great view of the surrounding area. If you're looking for a fun place to take your family or hangout with a few friends, you want to come here. All the runs are long except for 3 of the bunny hills. Also, after you're done skiing, stop into the bar to checkout... More

My husband and I just returned to Sundown after a 15+ year hiatus. It was an excellent last minute trip! The snow was nicely groomed and maintained. Good "long" runs ... when compared to neighbouring resorts in Illinois and Wisconsin. Lift lines were non-existent. The staff was very friendly. Besides the great snow, we would return for a few reasons...... More

Sundown Mountain is amazing. The staff helps you through every step of getting ready to safety checks to conquering the bunny hill! I felt safe the whole time and the facility is set up perfect. I can't wait to return next year with everyone!

This is the third or fourth time I have skiied here and there is always something new to discover. The snow conditions were very good and it seems like they can make a lot of snow here in a hurry. Friendly staff and a homey feel.

I always love coming back and skiing at least one day at Sundown. I learned to ski here when I was younger. The people are great and the snow crew does a super job!

A very good place for skiing n snowboarding.I went here with my friends for skiing and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment we spent there. If you are a beginner It's worth going for an instructor. They spent quality time with you teaching n explaining. There were various slopes to keep you engaged, be it for beginners, intermediates or for pros.... More

This was a return visit and I have to say it just keeps getting better every time I visit. They were offering some super early season specials and I was a little leery that the conditions would be good as there was no snow on the ground near my home only 70 miles away. They obviously had been hard at... More

I grew up skiing at Sundown and now take my kids out there. It's a great place to learn before tackling the mountains. Sundown has a nice variety of runs and the addition of the terrain park was a big hit. The trails are groomed nicely and the lift lines are usually pretty good but we tend to avoid the... More

I enjoy the view, the runs, the lifts and the friendly workers at Sundown. The prices are very reasonable. Their hours are very appropriate for the season.
