Snow tubing is the perfect spring break activity for K-12 students, and Big Bear Snow Play provides a quality experience for spring breakers. Fresh snow is in the forecast, which is expected to add an extra layer to Big Bear Snow Play’s 4 to 15 foot snow base. This comes at an opportune time for parents who are seeking a fun-filled spring break getaway with their kids.
“Snow tubing is the answer for those who want to forget about school for awhile,” said Big Bear Snow Play Director of Operations Scott Voigt. “We currently have a solid base of snow and hopefully Mother Nature delivers even more.”
To ensure optimum sliding conditions the snow-tubing park grooms its eight runs nightly, just as ski resorts do. The groomed snow creates an evenly spread corduroy surface for fast-paced downhill fun.
Big Bear Snow Play provides two Magic Carpet uphill lifts, which are comprised of a large moving conveyor belt, similar to an airport terminal people mover that transports riders to the top of snow-packed slopes. The purpose of Magic Carpet rides is to eliminate the tiring uphill climb, which in turn provides opportunity for more downhill thrills.
Big Bear Lake has all of the components for a “cool” Spring Break vacation, including mild temperatures, mostly sunny skies, plenty of places to stay and an easy drive that’s close to home. Big Bear Snow Play offers a diversion of adventure, excitement and good times; all great remedies for the classroom blues. Students can take time off to escape from textbooks, homework and pop quizzes to slide down snow-packed hills!
