Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow-jurors when neighbors don't show up to serve in a non-binding apartment court, and you can ski on it. Celebrate snow's acceleratory capabilities with today’s Groupon to Sunburst Ski Area in Kewaskum. Choose between the following options:
- For $26, you get two night session lift tickets, valid Monday-Thursday from 4-9 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. (a $60 value).
- For $15, you get two tubing passes, good for unlimited tubing Tuesday-Thursday from 4-8 p.m. (a $30 value).
Nestled in the hills northwest of Milwaukee, Sunburst Ski Area is a wonderland of downhill fun. With three terrain parks and nine runs suitable for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers and boarders, Sunburst welcomes snow-slingers and hot-chocolate consumers of all ages and skill levels. The ski schedule lets slalomers plan weekday trips down Sunburst’s snowy hills, and tubing times delineate how many times it's possible to scream at full volume. A much welcomed magic carpet ferries tube-happy feet back to the top of Sunburst’s 10-story-drop snow slide.
All participants must sign tubing release forms, and though there’s no age requirement for inflatable snow-laden fun, tubers should reach at least 42 inches on a standard yardstick-taped-to-a-ruler measuring device.
Sunburst Ski Area
Originally a family farm before two families of ski enthusiasts purchased the land in 1961, Sunburst Ski Area now encompasses 13 sundry ski runs as well as terrain parks and steep tubing lanes for winter athletes of all skill levels. Skiers and boarders plummet down nine runs that range from rolling bunny hills to harrowing double-black-diamond steeps. Flashy alpinists can trick out at the terrain parks, which boast a series of rails, ramps, and tables for mid-grind picnic lunches. Additionally, patrons can carve through the fresh powder after dark, as a full spotlight system keeps the slopes open until 9 p.m. from Monday–Thursday and 10 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. On the tubing hill, riders seated in inflatable tubes zoom, bob, and spin down 12 chutes measuring 900 feet long and spanning a 10-story descent. The tubes can reach speeds of more than 40 miles per hour, which is just fast enough to outpace the hungry snowmen that think each one is a gigantic donut.
