The Ski Resort
Ski Snowstar Winter Sports Park is located in Coal Creek Valley above the Mississippi River. It only takes you about 10 minutes to get there from the Quad Cities. 11 hectares of varied terrain are awaiting you. The trails are served by two Quad Chairs, one Double-Double, a rope-tow and two magic carpets. Their capacity of 10,500 per hour makes sure that you won´t find any long liftlines at Ski Snowstar! All trails are lighted seven days a week so the fun is not limited by sunset. Freestylers will find a variety of terrain features throughout the entire area. There´s everything you can ask for: rails, rollers, quarter pipes, table tops and much more! The elements are reshaped and relocated regularly so you will always find a new challenge when you return to Snowstar. There is also a separate beginner area available where novice skiers and riders can practice in a safe environment. At the Day Lodge you will find a cafeteria and a pizza/sub shop for your refreshment. In addition, there are two fireplaces available where you can warm yourself before you return to the slopes.
