Skiing at Wintergreen was definitely fun, but snowtubing was absolutely awesome!!!
The Plunge is a huge snowtubing park. There are ten 900 ft. lanes with a vertical drop of 100 feet - 10 stories! - where you can reach speeds of 25-40 mph! As they say, thrills and chills, without the spills. You get 2 hours of tubing for $20. We didn't know they book up fast, so the earliest we could get was a 4-6pm slot. Turns out the colder it gets, the icier the lanes get, and the faster you fly down the slopes! So much fun hooking up in teams of 2 and having "races" to the bottom, but the boys were so excited and having so much fun they even went alone a few times.
The sun was setting as we neared the end of our time slot, and it couldn't have been a more beautiful ending to a ridiculously fun-filled day.
Seriously, this little getaway to the mountains was just about the perfect mini vacation before having to head back to school.
