Des Moines is pretty much in the middle of nowhere as far as places to ride. You have your choice between Sundown in Dubuque, or Mt. Cresant by Counsel bluffs. Sundown is on the far east side of the state and Cresant is on the far west side of the state. Cresant is a nice little place, but nothing special, it's ok to get a board fix. Sundown looks better, and both are about the same distance from DM. The good news is both places have pretty cheap lift tickets around 40 bucks. Both places are open late, depending on the day usually till 8-9pm. If you go to Cresant there are casino's a couple miles down the road if your into gambling.
