Traveling the two Virginias: Winterplace Ski Resort


Brittany Williams, WVVA News---Fast, one word seems to describe the experience of snow tubing at Winterplace Ski Resort.

But tubing is different than skiing and snowboarding, which typically take some practice and skill.

"The beautiful thing about tubing is that anyone can do it, young or old."

The President of Winterplace Ski Resort Terry Pfeiffer says it's the ease and the thrill of tubing that draws people in from all over the country.  "We actually opened the tube park in 1997/98 and its just been a great success."

And getting to the top of the hill, that's easy.  One tuber joked about his ride on the lift.  "It makes you feel lazy."

Then, when you are ready, just take a seat, and hold on tight.  Whether you are a kid....or just like to act like one, grab a tube, and enjoy the ride.
