I remember those cold, snowy days where we would bundle up so only our noses would show between our toques and scarves. We’d waddle in our snowsuits dragging our toboggans behind us to the best hill we could find. We’d spend the whole day trudging up that hill avoiding friends flying past us, pile on that wooden speed machine waxed to perfection, and take our turn flying down the hill attempting to steer to avoid trees, fences and kids strewn over the hill from fabulous roll-overs. It was the best!
Times have changed and so have the sledding toys. From the magic carpet to ski machines to flying saucers and now the amazing inflatable snow tubes! To make the whole outdoor winter experience even more fun there are now snow tubing parks where you can go for a day and share mega laughs with friends and family while you fly down mountains of groomed snow paths in singles or multiples.
When I was a kid and hit the hills with my toboggan or GT for the day, and there was a huge group of us! We’d build jumps, take a break and build snow men, head to a house close-by to warm up with hot chocolate and then do it all over again – it was an event!
Create the same memorable experiences for your kids by arranging for the kids in the community to head to the hill or tube park!
Tips to plan your snow tubing/tobogganing party
- Check the weather and have a back-up date
- Decide if there will be a follow-up location to extend the fun
- Sort out if food and drink will be provided, sold or potluck style
- Research the location, to determine if there are admission costs and collect funds in advance so the fun gets started right away!
- Be realistic on the kids stamina and the length of time your event will run
- Identify chaperons so parents can relax too
Plan with ease
Once you’ve decided on how to plan and run your event, Eventastic will make your planning easy as you fill out the invite template with all the details, await responses and sort out the fine details. `
It’s really easy for parents to take photos and upload them directly to the event page. After the event, if you are having a follow-up party, you can watch the slide show as a group and have a few more laughs. The best part about the photos is that anyone who had access to the event page can download them all as soon as they like!
It’s a perfect way of seeing and feeling the beauty of winter and building memories and relationships that will last!
