Snow Tubing

This week our local ski hill Snow Trails held a charity event called "Will Tube For Food".  With a donation of a few canned goods from the cupboard my family and I scored a free lift ticket and enjoyed an evening of gravity assisted winter time fun. 


  1. Looks like a blast! Snow tubes... good lord. I think if I had one when I was a kid I would be dead right now. I remember that the fastest sled we had in the garage was an orange plastic one made by Paris. My tail bone hurts just thinking of the ice ramps we used to make.

  2. LOL! Remember those pieces of blue plastic with two slots cut in one end as hand holds that would roll up as soon as you let go of them? Wicked fast but yep they would beat you to death if the hill was bumpy and/or icy.

    These tubes are pretty cool. The top is made of a heavy nylon webbing type material and the bottom half looked to me like teflon plastic. Inside was just an ordinary truck tire innertube.
