World-class terrain parks and tubing are literally minutes away, and it's cheaper than you'd think!

If you're itching for a little winter adrenaline, Gateway Parks in Eagle has the hookup! Their Eagle Island park is open every single day, so you don't need to do quantum physics on your calendar to figure out a time to get out and have some fun. It's the perfect place to hang out if you're a seasoned veteran skier, or looking to try snowboarding or tubing for the very first time.

This writer got turned on to Gateway Parks because my entire life experience with snow sports consists of "surfing" down snow-covered hills as a kid on a dinky plastic sled. A lot of ski/snowboarding hills can be intimidating, filled with pros flying down the hills at breakneck speeds. As a first timer, maybe you're looking for something a little more user friendly. That's what makes Gateway Parks so great! They welcome enthusiasts of all skill levels, and of course there's tubing which is just straight-up fun for everyone.

Don't be turned off by all the offerings, all this comes at really affordable prices:

  • $15 - 2-hour tubing ticket
  • $15 - 2-hour terrain park ticket
  • $30 - All day tubing ticket
  • $20 - All day terrain park ticket

If you've yet to check out Gateway Parks, now's the perfect time. Snowboarding, skiing and tubing awaits! Just make sure to have your phone ready so you can snap a killer selfie mid-ride! All the info on Gateway Parks hours, offerings, and ticket prices can be found here.
