|Kiddie Tubing Hill|
|Large Tubing Hill|
There are three lanes for the kiddie hill, and many more lanes on the large hill. We waited until the lane was clear and gave her a push. The tube can spin a lot, so we were concerned at first that she would not like that. At the bottom of the hill, an attendant will take the lead of the snow tube and return your child to you. We had to walk fast to retrieve her at the base of the hill, but running down is not really needed since the kids just wait in their tubes to be handed to their parents. Thankfully, she seemed to love the fast ride and the spinning. I would ask after each ride if she wanted to take a break, but she wanted to do it over and over again.
|The "Magic Carpet"|
The lodge has a snack bar, complete with the usual foods. I saw a lot of people eating pizza and french fries, and of course, drinking hot chocolate. There is a fire pit outside the lodge, as well as a nice fireplace inside to get warmed up. It was very tempting to try the large hill that night, but kids must be five years old to use it. We also have a Double Take Deal to use at Avalanche Express in York, so we'll wait to try the big hills there.
Things to Remember:
1. It's obvious, but bundle up. I had on three pairs of socks and two pairs of gloves.
2. Check out the live webcams on their website. They can show you the conditions and the size of the crowd.
3. Have your child hold the rope on their tube when they go down. Sometimes it gets caught under the tube during the slide and slows them down.
