Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park
November 16, 2019 - February 23, 2020
Snow Much to Do at Stone Mountain Park!
Snow tubing at any age – and in Georgia – might be a daunting experience. But 22-month-old Olivia, who is very visual and verbal, has been preparing with educational books about snow.
We scheduled our snow appointment for an early Saturday morning. Stone Mountain has 2-hour passes to keep the slopes from getting overcrowded, and you can also purchase an unlimited pass. But for smaller children, the 2-hour time slot is perfect, and getting there early gave Olivia the chance to get used to snow without also being overwhelmed by the amount of people.
Snow Mountain has two areas for little kids that are close together, so they can have spots to themselves without having to weave around older and bigger children. There were two different slopes, Penguin Run and the Bunny Slope, and once Olivia saw a child go down the slope, she was pumped to try it herself. She had so much fun, we spent more than an hour with her going down the slopes.
In the Snow Zone, she played with the snow using the shovels and attempting to build. There are no snowball fights, but you can throw snowballs at the Snowball Shooting Gallery.Other Stone Mountain attractions may also be available depending on what day you go. Olivia enjoyed riding the train at Scenic Railroad. Snow Mountain is a fun way to introduce younger kids to snow and play in a way Atlantans don’t normally get to.
