“Calling all snow seekers.” Recent storms have left the local mountains covered in new snow and Mountain High’s North Pole Tubing Park will open for the holidays this Friday, December 21st. Up to six lanes will be available accessed by two moving carpets and custom tubes are included in the price. Nothing is better than enjoying family around a warm fireplace on a snowy December day. And the North Pole Tubing Park is where Southern California’s do just that. Located an hour and a half from downtown Los Angeles, the snow is easy to find at Mountain High and there is never any mountain driving.
Says John McColly, Chief Marketing Officer, “This is a fun and safe way for everyone to enjoy winter in the mountains.”
The tubing park is open from 9:00am to 4:00pm seven days-a-week through January 6th, then Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays peak season. (Weather permitting).
Prices for everyone over three and a half feet tall are $20 for two hours of unlimited rides and $35 for a full-day. Tickets for children 36 to 42 inches tall are $15 with a paying adult. Tubes are included in the ticket price, and children 36 to 42 inches tall must accompany a parent in a separate tube. Children under 36-inches tall are not permitted for safety reasons.
Mountain High’s tubing park is located at the North Resort directly across from the entrance of the West resort. Turn up the entrance road off Hwy 2 and continue one mile up the road. The park offers ample parking, restrooms, a warming area with lockers and food and drink concessions. Click here for complete directions http://www.mthigh.com/mountain/directions
First-time tubers will want to know that while temperatures in the mountains average 20 to 30 degrees colder than down in the cities, staying warm is easy. The best choice is water-resistant, layered clothing that can be added or removed as the weather changes. It is always best to be prepared as conditions can and sometimes do change rapidly at high elevations. If clothes are not water resistant, a water repellent spray can be applied. Tubers will also want to be sure to have warm gloves and a hat or beanie. Remember, the majority of body heat is lost through the head. A simple beanie can do wonders to keep tubers warm, especially during a storm or periods of snowmaking.
Should any of these important items be forgotten, the Mountain High Sport Shops, located at all three Mountain High resorts carry the latest in clothing and equipment for winter enthusiasts.
