Leaving the Carpool Location at 10AM
Fraser Tubing Hill About the only hiking you will do is from the bottom of the hill to the lift line, but getting to this trail head is a lot of fun!!!
This is a great event for adults and children. The tubing hill in Fraser, just 2 miles from downtown Winter Park, has been a perennial favorite for kids and adults alike, and is one of those “wacky” activities that cannot be missed during the winter season. The tubing hill itself is a groomed, lighted hillside, “smooth and slippery”, with a convenient tube-tow lift system that attaches to the tube itself to transport you back up top the top. From there, you speed down the hill in a large inflated inner tube (supplied) with an adrenalin buzz that is guaranteed to put a huge smile on your face! Descend individually, in tandems, or group “clusters” where the speeds are the highest, and the run-outs the longest.
Cost (Cash only) ~ $20/hr Adults ~ $15/hr Children

Trail Head Location The Fraser tubing hill is located 1/2 mile behind the Alco shopping center. There are 2 tubing hills in this area. When you get to the fork in the road, go UP the hill to the left. This is the older and in my oponion, better, establishment. We should be at the hill around 11AM.
