Snow Tubing – Skibowl

Tubing - Ski Bowl
My wife and I being from the Midwest are new to the whole skiing thing. Well, I at least have never been skiing before. This weekend to celebrate being a couple for 7 years, we decided to head to Mt Hood and check things out. I was pretty intimated by the skiing thing, so we decided to try out the snow tubing. Skibowl offers a few hills, and even features a tow rope. I will be honest and say I expected a little more as far as the hill is concerned. It is a pretty short run, but VERY fun nonetheless. It was fun seeing the families with kids having a blast. We got a little cold and tired, so of course we head into the lodge next to the hill and had some beers. Is it me, or does beer make everything better? We hit the slope a few more times, and then decided to head home. We walked over the highway and noticed it was gridlocked. What now? Cue the beer. There is a pretty neat little “village” area with a few bars and restaurants. We went to the Ratskeller and warmed up with some great appetizers and beers. A great weekend trip I recommend to all, especially to those with kids.
