Mineral Point, Wisconsin is well located for a tri-state skiing/boarding experience. At nearby Tyrol Basin – less than 30 minutes away – you’ll find plenty of groomed runs and guaranteed snow (thanks to their high-powered snow machines). And new this year is – AIRBAG! – so you can practice your aerial moves without cracking open your head. Less than an hour away in Dubuque, Iowa is Sundown Mountain. And an hour southwest will take you to Galena, Illinois’ Chestnut Mountain. Perfect for a three-day weekend.
Where to stay? Make Mineral Point your base of operations. You can stay in one of the unique historic guesthouses in town or for easy access to Highway 151 (The Tri-State Ski-way), opt for the Quality Inn and enjoy the indoor pool, hot tub and complimentary waffles for breakfast.
It’s an alpine trifecta!
