In June 2007, historic Dubuque was one of the ten cities designated an "All American City".
In 2005, Dubuque was selected by USA Today as one of the "10 greatest places to discover Midwest charm".
Dubuque is also known for an exciting mix of nightlife, entertainment, activities, and fun. Great surprises are sometimes found in the most unexpected places.
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.
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 compliment mother nature,
providing a breathtaking winter wonderland from mid-November through mid-March.
