It's a hill, in a flat state. Also, typically has tubing runs
pretty small, not much terrain
Small place, but nothing else is really close. For kids who have never, and will never ski/ ride in the mountains, I'm sure its a fun day. The terrain is pretty homogenous - point your skis/ board toward the bottom and go. It's Iowa, so you know people will be friendly. Family friendly, easy to get to.
They run a tubing service on the Des Moines river in the summer. Pretty fun to do on a warm afternoon.
