Last weekend, I tried something I'd never done before – I went tubing. It was a beautiful day at Alpine Mountain. The slopes were busy, but not crowded. The three of us grabbed our tubes and hooked up to the lift.
The excitement was building as we climbed the hill. Whizzing by head were snowballs fashioned mostly from ice, luckily none of them hit their mark. We were now at the top, lining up in our own lanes and getting ready for our first race. The speeds reached on that first ride were surprisingly fast. But you soon realize that the danger is low - thus the appeal of snowtubing. You can reach high speeds on icy conditions but as long as you sit in your tube, you're safe. We all had a great time at Alpine that day, and we will definitely go back.
