Tubing hills open at Saint Joseph County Parks


Friday was opening day for tubing at Saint Joseph County Parks. For the first time in several years there was actually snow so the hills could open on schedule.

Even with the cold temperatures, people showed up ready to have a good time at Ferrettie-Baugo Creek County Park.

Shelley Chaffee, Leisure Service Assistant Supervisor, said she is happy to see a snow filled opening day.  "I am really excited to finally have some good snow," Chaffee said, "we should have a good weekend."

Tubing enthusiast Justin Skinner brought his 5-year-old daughter to go tubing for the first time.  "It was interesting going down the first time," Skinner said. "We weren't used to it yet." 

There are warming stations at both Ferrettie-Baugo Creek and Saint Patrick's County Parks.  Employees encourage tubers to dress warmly.  To find out current tubing conditions, other winter activities and park hours, visit Saint Joseph County Parks.
