Creating Traditions at Skibowl

Creating Traditions at Skibowl

By Cory Marshall, KATU News Saturday, November 28th 2015

MT. HOOD, Ore. -- As they have in years past, Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl flicked up the lights and turned on the music for their cosmic tubing - what a difference a year makes!

On opening weekend last year, Skibowl restricted tubing to a small two-lane hill. Employees say it was not cold enough to make snow. This year, conditions are different. Saturday night, Skibowl East, where the cosmic tubing experience is set up, was a cool mid-twenties with wind pushing the powder around.

The Moore family lives in nearby Boring, Ore. They make it a holiday habit to head to Mt. Hood at least a couple times every winter, but this is the first time they're tubing after dark. The Moore boys, 9 and 11, are completely unaware, but mom and dad know this is a memory in the making.

"It's great to see a smile on their faces. Yeah, even when we're frozen, it's still fun," their parent said.

Trevor and Hayley Haubemberger are making memories of their own and reflecting on old ones too.

The last time Trevor was at Skibowl he was with his father and says he could not have been more than 12. Now, years later, with his wife by his side, the two are experiencing Mt. Hood together for the very first time.

"I feel like a kid again. This brings back so many memories -- so many memories," Trevor Haubemberger told KATU News, tube in hand.

"It's all about creating new traditions," Hayley Haubemberger added.
