Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park
November 17, 2018 - February 24, 2019
As we sped down Avalanche Alley on Snow Mountain, where up to eight riders pile into an oversize tube and take off down the slope, I was sure we were all going to crash. The kids, of course, loved it.
“Mom, you are such a wimp!,” my daughter exclaimed, and her brother agreed. After that thrill, I was happy watching from the sidelines.
Margaret, 14, and Philip, 11, each grabbed a tube at the bottom of the snow-covered Tube Runners slope and jumped on moving walkways that made the trip up easy. At the top, staff members helped them launch. Single and double tubes are available and tubes can be fastened together into a chain of riders.
Both kids reported that the ride down was “fast and awesome!” and it was a hands-down favorite. My kids had a fantastic time on our visit, and younger kids will find plenty to love, too.
Fun for Younger Kids: The SnowZone snow play area has buckets and snow-building tools to craft snowmen or igloos, a snowball shooting gallery, a Penguin Run with mid-sized slides and a Little Angels area for kids 3 and younger with small hills and slides for sledding and tubing. Kids can spend hours in snow play there.
