Do You Want to Learn About Taking A Fun Valley Ski Vacation In Iowa?

Aug 17, 2007
Fun Valley is located in Montezuma, Iowa, with 14 named runs and 5 trails, with only 30 inches of average snowfall a year. With 35 acres of skiable area, they use 100% of snowmaking for the winter enjoyment of their skiers and snowboarders. Catering to beginners and intermediates, the Fun Valley ski resort makes a great place for families with children and beginners to learn how to ski, or to learn how to snowboard. Snowboarders are also welcome, with a gentle terrain available. Eight paths are for snowboarders alone with no cross-country available. Unfortunately, no handicap accessibility is available but night skiing is there. Group lessons are in one-hour increments, for 6-years and older and private lessons are offered 5-years and under. Skiing and snowboarding are in both private and group packages with advance reservations preferred, so it would be a good idea to book in advance for the lessons. Snow tubing is also available as one of the winter activities, in addition to snowshoeing.

Fun Valley offers outstanding group rates for groups of ten or more. Birthday packages are also fun, exciting and wonderful for that special day for kids, and their friends and family, ages twelve and under. Every Wednesday and Thursday night the ski resort offers a student night with greatly reduced rates. Buddy Pass Friday's are also popular - bring your friends and you will all save on lift tickets. Coca-Cola sponsors Sprite Saturday's at Fun Valley, where you can participate in three activities for one flat affordable fee. Sundays are Family Four Pack Day. There is no doubt about it, today when family values are questionable, going skiing is a way for everyone to have fun with each other and also, by doing something different.

The top elevation at Fun Valley is 1,201 feet, with a vertical drop of 200 feet. There are six lifts, including three chair lifts and three surface lifts. The new learning Adventure Centre is something to see - and experience if you are a beginner. All students are allowed to develop their skills at their own pace, with seven stations providing a fun evironement for the development of mobility and balance, stopping, direction change, linked controlled turns, green stripe evaluation in a Slalom Course, introduction to chairlifts, and rhythmical turns on a green slope. Between the Ski Adventure Centre and the Snowboard Ride Centre, there is no reasons why teaching cannot be fun!
