Cosmic Tubing becomes a Party on the SnowFriday November 2nd 2012
More cosmic lights, hip DJ’s, and new attractions will bring large crowds to Skibowl’s Snow Tube & Adventure Park after hours.
(Government Camp, OR—Oct. 5, 2012) By combining laser lights, strobe lights, black lights, reflective snow tubes and a new sound system, Cosmic Tubing is a party on the snow, held every Friday and Saturday night, plus holiday periods, at Skibowl’s Snow Tube & Adventure Park.
“We’ve created a unique environment and a fun winter experience for people of all ages to have a blast, “said Kirk Hanna, owner of Mt. Hood Skibowl. “The response has been great. Everyone is enjoying the entertainment and this year the show will be bigger and better.”
Party music sets the tone with laser lights flashing on the snow, black lights shining from above and neon green tubes; the atmosphere is electric. Over a dozen groomed lanes accommodate the tubers, riding single, tandem or on the party tubes which are new this year.
Also new this year is the addition of winter zip line adventures. Fly high above the park with over 800 feet of zip lines. As Mt. Hood Skibowl’s owner/operator, Kirk Hanna’s entrepreneurial spirit continues on as he begins to merge Skibowl’s summer Mt. Hood Adventure Park with the winter season. “This year we’ve upgraded our zip lines, zip towers and added an additional 300 feet to the zip line tour. We will also now operate our zip line adventures through the winter as part of the Snow Tube & Adventure Park,” said Hanna.
And, there’s no need to trudge uphill. A new conveyor lift carries people and their snow tubes to the top of the hill, where you will also find the slope side Multorpor Lodge Bar and Grill. The DJ’s will spin music from the back deck of the lodge where everyone can enjoy dancing, food and drinks just steps from the top of the tube hill.
“Cosmic tubing is an absolute blast for the whole family!” said Kyle Lehner, 30, of Portland. “There is such great energy playing in the snow at night with the laser lights and the music. It’s just one of those magical feelings bringing the whole family to this one-of-a-kind winter attraction. It’s going to be a winter tradition for us.”
Cosmic Tubing is scheduled every Friday and Saturday night, from 7p-10p at Skibowl East, plus daily through Christmas break and Oregon’s spring break. Cost is $30 a person. Access to the conveyor lift and snow tubes are provided at the park entrance.
Skibowl is typically open for winter activities from December through April and is located at 87000 East Highway 26, in Government Camp, Oregon. The main information line is 503-222-BOWL (2695) or online at www.skibowl.com.
