It has become a tradition--SNOWTUBING AT PERFECT NORTH with our homeschool group.  The kids look forward to it each year and the promise of "tickets" to participate are part of their Christmas gift each year.  It was overcast and rained for about 45 minutes while we were there (we were there from 1 PM until close to 9 PM) so we pretty much had the place to ourselves!  This year D joined us for the first time, he had never been sledding, let alone snowtubing, so it was great fun to watch him go down the runs!
Tori also had her first real tubing experience, we took her to the baby slope and pushed her down a few times, she absolutely LOVED it, but refused to leave her gloves on her hands, so since it was rather chilly we didn't get to stay out there for a very long time, but she went down at least 5 times!  She is now a seasoned "tubing" pro at 16 months old!

Snow Tubing at Perfect North

When: Wednesday, February 15, 2012

1:00 pm - 9:30 pm (they close at 9:30 but you don't have to stay till then)

Cost: $20.00 per person YOU MUST PAY ME IN CASH

Who: Homeschoolers of all ages (From Perfect North website: Not recommended for toddlers or younger.)
I have seen two children as young as 4 do it but these kids were the second youngest of large families.
Also please note that your child MUST ride ALONE in their tube. Perfect North will NOT make exceptions to this rule.

We always have a great time doing this! Last year most of us stayed
from 1-8:30PM!! To get the group rate of $20.00 a person then we have
to pay as a group. So we are asking everyone to try to arrive no later than
1pm so we can collect the money and waivers, pay and get on the tubing
slopes as soon as possible. If you can't get there until after 1pm then you
can pay me before hand and I will have your tickets for you when you arrive.
Once I pay for our group there are NO REFUNDS.

You are welcome to bring your own food. They have a heated tent with
picnic tables, outlets for anyone wanting to have hot food and/or drinks,
and a concession stand for those who choose to buy. They also have nice
heated bathrooms located just outside the heated tent. Dressing in layers is
recommended because you never know what kind of snow tubing weather
it's going to be. Last year most of us were down to our t-shirts it got so warm!
But it got colder as it got darker and so it was nice to have something warm to put back on.
