Snowtubing

MOONLIGHT SNOWTUBING!

The excitement builds as we drive to the nearby Villa Olivia ski area(1401 W Lake St, Bartlett IL, 45 min from downtown) for a thrilling snowtubing adventure under the stars 5p-8p, $17. https://www.wepay.com/events/snowtubing-reserved-126

Tickets must be paid for by 2/21 and are limited to 3 per person, in order to allow as many adult meetup members to attend as possible. It is just not fair to allow children to take up the majority of the tickets at what is meant to be an adult social function. Perhaps you can arrange to bring your family snowtubing on your own another time. Thank you for understanding. If issues arise and you cannot attend, please call or text host Robin T ASAP and we will try to sell your ticket to a member on the Waitlist so you can be refunded.

Fee includes two hours of snow tubing and the use of the snow tube. If we don't get 15 people to pay in advance, we will have to purchase tickets in the Ski Lodge. Then snow tube tickets are sold first come first served, based on availability. Well-behaved children are permitted at this event. Kids age 6 and over get their own tube for $17. 

We will meet in the ski lodge to Meet & Greet and buy tickets at 5p. Look for host Robin T wearing a turquoise ski jacket, furry black headband, red plaid scarf & black ski pants with meetup sign and nametag[masked]-7555. It is best to wear snowpants with thermal long johns, jeans can get wet & cold. We will have silver beads to distinguish us from the crowd & help us find each other.

Post in the comments if you are driving from downtown and would like to be a carpool driver, approx 45 min drive. You will receive $10/person gas money. 

There is a bar and restaurant with fireplace in the ski lodge, we will enjoy a light dinner & drinks together after. We can also hang out there if there is a wait for the popular snowtubing activity. Please bring cash, to make settling the tab easier. 

The Villa Olivia Ski Café offers a multitude of casual menu items including: 

Hot Chocolate, Coffee, Sodas, Milk, Bottled Water & Gatorade

Pizza, Hamburgers, & Hot Dogs Soup & Chili French Fries, Nachos, & Chips 

Cookies & Donuts Salads, Fruit & Yogurt. Menu items are reasonably priced and are subject to change at any time.

For those who are 21 & older they have a full service bar serving coffee, sodas, beer, wine & cocktails.

    I'm so sorry I was sick with a cold and couldn't stay for the fun. I hope everyone had a good time, despite the chilly temps. 23 people came out from all the meetup groups! A big thanks to Henri for hosting, and all who braved the snowstorm and still participated. Hope to see you at another event soon!

    There are still a few tickets left if you would like to join us! But you must pay for your ticket in advance, please do not just show up if you haven't paid. You would not be included in our group. Thanks!

    Robin asked me to post that I have three tix for sale!

    March 1

  • Monica C

    Our babysitter just cancelled so now I have three tix available to sell. How does this work?

  • Michael R

    Looks like I rsvp'd but didn't purchase a ticket and it's sold out. My bad. I might head out there on my own with a friend (fun trip due to being near my old neighborhood in my youth). I understand I won't be with the group.

    March 1

  • Robin T

    We will meet in the ski lodge to Meet & Greet and pick up tickets at 5p. There is a bar in the building next door, come a bit earlier of you would like to have a drink beforehand or a bite to eat. Call or text if you don't see me or the group in the rental area at 5p.([masked] Our tubing time is 5:30p-7:30p. If you are late, you may have to wait 2 hours for your tube. No refunds, sorry. Bundle up, and let's have fun! :-)

    • Robin T

      I'll be wearing a turquoise blue ski jacket with a black furry headband, with pink Mardi Gras beads and a Meetup tag. There will be beads for all to distinguish us from the crowd and help us find each other during the evening.

      February 28

  • Robin T

    Forecast for Sat. is 23 and clear, with evening temp of 16. Pleasant, but still a bit chilly so bundle up! We will have a great time, there is still a few spots left if you want to join us. Please make sure you have the phone number of your carpool ride. Call or txt me with any questions [masked]

    February 26

  • Robin T

    Ok, this event is now rescheduled- for hopefully the LAST time! ;D Mark your calendar for SATURDAY MARCH 1, 5:30p-7:30p and keep your fingers crossed for pleasant evening temps. This polar vortex thing has been ridiculous! Hope many of you can still make it, if not please change your RSVP and call or text me for a refund [masked]-7555. Watch for an email with updated post for the new date. Thank you all for being so flexible and understanding, sincere apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience.

    February 5

  • Robin T

    Oh, NO, not again!! The forecast for Sunday is only 23 degrees, with a nighttime low of -2. Unfortunately after sunset the temp will start dropping. If the forecast does not improve by Friday we will either make it earlier in the afternoon(maybe 2p-4p) or reschedule for Sat. Mar 1. Keep checking back for an updated post. I would be very disappointed too, but being outdoors for 2hrs in bitter cold would not be fun for anyone. This winter has been exceptionally chilly, and made it difficult to plan. If the new time or date doesn't work out for you, you would receive a refund. And you are welcome to post here if you want to go regardless, and arrange for others to meet you.

    Friends,

    The payment link is now reopened. Tickets must be paid for by 2/2 midnight TONIGHT and are limited to 3 per person, in order to allow as many adult meetup members to attend as possible. It is just not fair to allow children to take up the majority of the tickets at what is meant to be an adult social function limited to 25 people. Perhaps you can arrange to bring your family snowtubing on your own another time. Thank you for understanding. If issues arise and you cannot attend, please call or text me ASAP and we will try to sell your ticket to a member on the Waitlist so you can be refunded.([masked]

  • Monica C

    Hey I need one more ticket, can anyone sell me one?

    February 2

    • Robin T

      Hi Monica, I have all the tickets paid for on my credit card in my name so no individual person is able to sell their ticket to another member. Anyone who cancels must call or text me so I can try to sell their ticket to someone on the Waitlist and refund them [masked]-7555. The Meetup confirmation and WePay confirmations are not tickets and the venue will not recognize them. But everyone who paid is on my list, there is no need to print anything out to bring. Thanks!

    Also, anyone have extra room in the car? I live Andersonville and take the redline.

    Thanks - April

    Due to a wind chill advisory and gusting winds already blowing near Villa Olivia, this event is being rescheduled for Sunday Feb 9. Sincere apologies, we're disappointed too but it just would not be enjoyable. If you still would like to go, the tubing hill is not crowded and you would probably get a tube right away. Post here so you can arrange to meet with anyone else who may want to brave the elements as well.
    If you cannot make it 2/9 and would like a refund, call or text me [masked]-7555. Thank you for understanding, hope to see you on 2/9!

    With the date change, will it still be at 5:00 pm on 2/9?

    January 26, 2014

  • Robin T

    Although 26-22 degrees is not that bad, there are 30 mile/hr winds with snow showers in the forecast for this evening. Wind chill can make it feel much colder, especially on your face. Villa Olivia will allow us to reschedule for 2/9, we just have to make a definite decision by 2:30p. I'm also checking with the other Meetup groups coming with us, to decide by noon. Sorry for waffling, we just want what's best for most of the group.

    January 26, 2014

    • Jenny C.

      Whatever everyone decides is fine here.

      January 26, 2014

    • Jenny C.

      Will they refund us if the snow melts by then?

      January 26, 2014

  • Henri B.

    We should be OK, folks. The forecast I saw called for temperatures still around 20° at 8 pm.

    January 26, 2014

  • Robin T

    The forecast for tomorrow is 29 degrees with a nighttime low of -5. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing how soon after sunset the temp will start dropping. We will call Villa Olivia in the morning to see if we reschedule for Sunday Feb 9. Check back tomorrow at noon for an updated post. You can also call or text me.([masked]
    Sorry for any disappointment, but being outdoors for 2hrs in bitter cold would not be fun for anyone. If the new date doesn't work out for you, you would receive a refund.

    I am driving. Anyone still need a ride?

    January 25, 2014

  • Robin T

    YAY!!! Updated forecast says 32 for Sunday, bitter cold is not coming until Monday. So the tubing is ON!

    If you would like a carpool ride, please state where you live or where you would want to be picked up from, and/or if you could get to a train stop or to the Juvenile Center (1100 S. Hamilton, near Damen & Roosevelt- parking for $2/day) or somewhere else near the driver's house. Thanks!

    If we can get 15 people to pay by Jan 19 (1 weeks in advance), we can get our tubes reserved and waiting for us. Otherwise there can be up to a 2hr wait in the lounge when we arrive. Please pay here: https://www.wepay.com/events/snowtubing-reserved-126

    Please also post here if you are willing to be a carpool driver, and state the area you live in.

      Last time we had some really good people, representing at least three different Meetup groups, and a good time getting acquainted as we waited for our tubes to become available. And when we finally got on the slope, we had a great time!

      And because Robin was so nice and understanding about the wait, the cashier gave us 15 extra minutes on our lift passes, and then on the slope, they let us get at least two more extra runs in after that... right up to when they were closing down.

      It's still too soon for me to commit to RSVPing, but I am trying to work it into my schedule, possibly bringing a friend and her daughter, and maybe another friend and her nieces. So glad to see that someone else is bringing kids, too!

      January 11, 2014

  • Jenny C.

    Sounds like fun! I'll be there with my 2 kids!
