A new snow park will be opening soon at Alpine Hills Adventure Park, offering affordable family fun all winter long. The park will be divided into tubing and terrain park (skiing and snowboarding) sections designed to accommodate riders of all abilities – from beginners to expert. Even the smallest visitors will be transported safely up the hillside on the Magic Carpet lift. Plus, snowmaking equipment will cover the park in fresh powder daily.
