Sleepy Hollow Sports Park Terrain

We have 250 feet of drop. We have a terrain park, a tubing hill, a beginner hill for both skiers and boarders. This year we are adding Zipfy to our winter activities. We built a new race course this fall, and will use that for the winter games as well as just for weekly events. There is plenty of room on our hill but at the same time, it's all kind of in the same spot, making it easy to stick in a group if you want, but you can still head out on your own and try some different things. Most of the hill faces the east, with out longest run going down the back of the hill (west) and wrapping around the north side. The bunny hills are on the north side, and tubing is on the south side. Our ski shop, first aid and concession stand is located right in the middle at the bottom of the hill. We are located just east of the Iowa State Fairgrounds on Dean Avenue.

Sleepy Hollow Sports Park Snowboarding

Tarrain Parks: 1

Snowboarding is available throughout the ski hill, but we have a section dedicated to terrain. We have multiple rails, jumps and boxes.
