Frisco tubing hill to open on Thanksgiving

The beginner ski/ride hill at the Frisco Adventure Park will open for the season on Monday, Jan. 4, 2016. Ski and ride lessons with Copper Mountain instructors will be available starting on Monday, Jan. 4, 2016.
“Mother Nature has certainly been smiling on us for the past few weeks, and we are looking forward to unveiling this year’s tubing lanes on Thanksgiving Day. We even have a few time slots on Thanksgiving Day which are already sold out, but we still have lots of room to accommodate enthusiastic tubers,” Frisco Adventure Park general manager Katie Barton said in a statement.
The Frisco Adventure Park also features the Frisco Nordic Center with more than 45 kilometers of trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The Frisco Nordic Center opened a limited number of trails on Friday, Nov. 20 and more trails will open as conditions allow. Two Below Zero sleigh rides, also located at the Adventure Park, started offering their dinner and hot cocoa rides on Saturday, Nov. 21.
The Adventure Park tubing hill is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with one-hour tubing sessions starting every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are expanded holiday hours, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., from Dec. 20 to Jan. 3. Reservations are encouraged, especially during holidays and on weekends.
Tubing is $25 per hour and each additional hour of tubing is $10. From Dec. 20 to Jan. 3, tubing is $30 per hour and each additional hour of tubing is $30. Riders must be at least 36 inches tall to tube.
The Adventure Park tubing hill offers a 10-punch pass. The 10-punch pass is $199 for guests from outside of Summit County, $170 for Summit County residents and $160 for town of Frisco residents. The 10-punch pass is transferable with no blackout dates. This is also a perfect pass for businesses wanting to sell or provide tubing passes to their customers. This option offers up to a 30-percent savings over regular prices.
New this year, the Adventure Park is offering a non-transferable, individual season pass for $79 per person for unlimited tubing. This pass offers savings of 21 percent even if it is just used for four hours of tubing. Pass holders must make a reservation in advance; only one hour reservations will be accepted during the holiday period; and there are no blackout dates on this pass. All passes are available for purchase at the Frisco Adventure Park (616 Recreation Way) or by calling (970) 668-2558 through Dec. 16.
