Skiers and Snowboarders Don’t Get to Have All the Fun
You don’t need epic carving skills or fancy equipment to make the most of the winter sports season. Many of NEPA’s ski resorts have snow tubing lanes where the kids (and the young at heart) can race down the slopes. All you have to do is plop down in the tube, push off and enjoy the wind in your face and the thrill of the adrenaline rush.
When it comes to tubing, NEPA goes all out. Our very own Camelback Mountain is home to the largest snow tubing park in the country. Or head over to Blue Mountain Resort, which has the longest snow tubing runs in Pennsylvania. Some resorts even offer nighttime tubing, which is like a party on the mountain with light shows and music.
Don’t catch cabin fever this winter. Put on your boots and bundle up for the best snow day ever at these local snow tubing destinations. Just remember, some ski slopes are requiring reservations or selling online-only tickets this year. Make sure to check the resort’s health and safety policies before you head out.
