Summer Tubing Hill - Snow Mountain Ranch

Summer Tubing Hill
at YMCA’s Snow Mountain Ranch

Note: Accommodations were provided by Snow Mountain Ranch but all photos, video and words are ours.
We have visited Winter Park many times, with and without YMCA of the Rockies and the tubing hills in the area are one of our favorite attractions. When Snow Mountain Ranch told me they were opening a SUMMER tubing hill, I knew we had to go check out. For this trip, our best friends came along, so the six of us shared a cabin as well as all the fun activities there are to do on site.

Our favorite thing, by far, was the new summer tubing hill.

One thing they don't tell you about being a parent is that summer returns. Especially when your child gets into the tween years and runs around the neighborhood with their friends all day. I remember the joy of the last day of school so distinctly.…

Eighteen Years

We met at a concert and it's almost an age test to see who remembers the bands who played: The Mighty Lemondrops and Material Issue. I get very reminiscent with I hear "Inside Out" and "Valerie Loves Me." When we tell the story, each of us leave out details we don't like, but the main point is this: it was a condemned bar and Bryan was moving back to Baltimore the very next day. The company I worked for was hiring and I gave him my number under that pretense. But we both knew there was something there, even then.
