Mark has done excellent work in making the runs and supporting structures even better than they were before he took the reigns. Well done, young Mr. Gordon!!

I attended a recent event at Sundown Mountain and our party was to have the entire south lodge. Upon arrival it appears that the hospitality department double booked because another party was setting up in the basement. The lodge itself is rustic which doesn't bother me but the bathroom was more primitive than rustic. I've hit the slopes at Sundown... More

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
