To get the group rates, we ask that one person pay for the entire group at the beginning of your visit and distribute the tickets. Please have the number of lift tickets, rentals, helmets, tubing tickets & lessons needed tallied in advance. 


Food & Beverage for Birthday Parties

  • A large, 1 topping pizza & 4 regular sodas for $19.95 (prices subject to change). Additional pizzas & sodas may be purchased.
  • We ask that no outside food or beverages be brought into the chalet.
  • You are welcome to bring in a cake. Please remember to bring along forks, plates and serving utensils.
  • If you want to bring goodie bags, we ask that they NOT include candy, pop, gum or confetti. Also, please don’t bring in helium balloons.
  • We are unable to reserve tables for your party. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis. Weekends and Holidays are typically busy. If you choose that time, we suggest you pick a morning or evening session to maximize your tube time.


No outside food or beverages are allowed in the chalet. Thank you for your cooperation.
