snowtubing (21 of 21)It was a nice day outside when Troop 240 gathered together, ready to have fun. On the steep snow-layered hills of Powder Ridge Park the troop and some Webelos scouts from Pack 24 could see the people zipping down the lanes of smooth snow in large, flat tubes. The temperature hit unexpected highs with a beautiful sun glaring upon the landscape. The park has snow machines, so the warm weather didn’t interrupt the snow tubing. After the troop had gotten their tickets to go, they started to march over to the tubing hill trudging through muddy trails. Once the scouts got there they dragged our tubes uphill and waited to speed down the snowy hill. Afterward, the boys enjoyed a cup of cocoa in the lodge and headed back in the carpool, satisfied with their tubing adventures of speeding down hills. – Langston C. (Tenderfoot)
