Ok, I know most people have to work the next day but what better reason to take a "sick" day. For 25 dollars offers two hours of tubing down their snowy mountains. If you've never gone it is a great way to feel like a kid again, even if those days are a distant memory. We will be meeting at the park and ride at I-695/I-70 around 6:15 and driving 1 1/2 hours up I-70 to the resort. We will stay till around 9:00-10:00, and you can be home and snug in your bed by midnight. So you might be a little sleepy the next day at work, but does anything really get done the week after Christmas anyway? Hope you can make it. We did this last year, and everyone had a great time.

The cost for tubing is $17 for one hour and $20 for two hours.
