Tubing Questions –

A lot of you guys have emailed about tubing. All that we can tell you is that the mild temps over the last few weeks have taken their toll on resorts and they will be focusing their snowmaking FIRST on the skiable terrain and then will work on tubing hills. However, there are a few exceptions.

Hawksnest Resort puts a lot of emphasis on tubing and they will most likely shoot to have tubing going MAYBE Saturday…but Sunday is more likely. Call ahead.
