The 106-acre Mt. Crescent Ski Area property was purchased by Pottawattamie County last year in order to preserve rare, globally-significant ecosystems in Iowa’s Loess Hills and to expand recreation opportunities that provide public health and economic benefits for Pottawattamie County residents and visitors.
