Let's embrace winter by doing some fun snow stuff such as snow tubing and/or skiing and/or snowboarding. Do what you feel like even if you just want to hang out in the lodge sipping hot cocoa.
Last winter fellow Onyxbird, Trina mentioned snow tubing and a trip was scheduled then rescheduled then rescheduled again due lack of interest. Now with the snow falling as I type this I figure there will be more interest.
If there are at least twenty RSVPS by March 6th, I'll arrange for group tickets.

Individual tubing price $28 ($4 discount w/group) for two hours of snow fun.
FYI ... there isn't any place to store valuables in the snow tubing area. There is a snack bar area.
