Winter, as we know it, is “slow approaching” this year, but don’t let that keep you from visiting the mountains where we still have lots of fun both on and off the slopes. If you’ve seen the romantic images of a ski lodge, happy people relaxing by a fire with a warm drink in hand …we’ve got all that here! Plus, we have snow too! Although not much from Mother Nature up to this point, but - with snowmaking - we’ve been piling the snow up any chance we get.
You can shush down the slopes with board(s) on your feet or, of course, you can sit back and enjoy the thrill of the winter season on a SNOWTUBE at Plattekill Mountain.
Snowtubing is simple, no experience necessary. All you have to do is enjoy the ride – then do it again! When you get to the Tubing Park, you’ll be towed, in the tube, up the hill, then you’ll go to your lane (kind of like a sloped bowling alley with bumpers) and zoom! Away you go!
We have the snowtubes and all you need… all you have to do is dress the part (we recommend a waterproof layer over the jeans so they don’t get cold and soggy), jacket, a pair of boots, gloves and hat – and you’re all set!
It’s fun for the whole family! Then, as in those romantic images, when you’re done, come into the warm, cozy lodge and retell the stories of your day on the Platty slopes! We plan to open the doors on New Year’s Day - Friday, January 1, 2016 for a season of skiing, snowtubing and après snow activities!
