“Outstanding staff made for a great day!”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Took our kids skiing and snowboarding on a 5 degree day - was sooo cold. Much to my surprise, the staff here was great! Everyone from our 1st contact person where we bought our passes, to the staff we got our skis and board from to the employees out on the hills and even the snack shop personnel were GREAT. Friendly, conscientious, pleasant employees... shocking. Granted, this isn't the WI Dells; however, with great staff like this there's no need to leave central Iowa Super fun day, will definitely come back when the snow flies in the fall.

“Good little slopes for short day trip skiing”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Wife and I went to ski at Seven Oaks and did not know what to expect. Since she is newer to the sport we started off on the bunny slope, which is better that sleepy hollow in Des Moines, just to get our legs warmed up. The temperature was great and they actually had a good base of snow, considering the warm temps this winter. If you are military they offer a $10 discount of the lift fees. If your an above average skier though, this isn't a place for you as you spend as much time on the lifts as you do skiing the small slopes. None the less, it is worth the time and money to enjoy the outdoors during the winter months.
