Sure, skiing is fun, but have you tried snow tubing? Sitting in an inner tube, you shoot down 300 feet of snow feeling the rush of wind as you fly down the mountain and hope you do not have too much speed and get shot to the parking lot. Mt. Shasta Ski Park has an amazingly fun snow tubing area. They sell passes for 2-hour blocks and let anyone from 5 years old to 105 years old go down. It is a hit with the kids, but the adults enjoyed getting the tubes and shooting down the hill as well. Check out the fun we had and see why you want to try snow tubbing next time you are in the Mt. Shasta Area.
5 Lanes lets plenty of kids go, and lets a group together race down to the bottom.
The end of the lanes has an uphill ramp to slow you down after flying down the hill.
You can either walk your tube up the hill…
Or ride the magic carpet up with your tube.
By far, the kids favorite run was the last lane, with its 3 bumps that sent you airborne. The kids favorite, not the adults…
I never expected to have as much fun tubing as we did. I went down a few times myself, and I enjoyed watching the kids fly down the hill screaming in delight. Skiing had been fun, but they must have ridden down those hills 20 times or more in the two hours they had. Whether you are a skier or not, it is worth the trip up to Mt. Shasta Ski Park for the tubing, and it is an excellent way for the whole family to get into the snow fun, no matter their fitness level.
