PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Visitors to Utah Olympic Park can now use inflatable inner-tubes to enjoy the snowy hills.
The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/1OU7uLb ) that park officials opened the small Extreme Tubing hill on Saturday. The attraction lets visitors slide down the snow-covered Nordic ski jump hills that Olympic-level athletes train on.
Public Programs Senior Manager Jennifer Clarke says no one flies off the jump, but most gain high speeds heading down the mountains.
Clarke says she expects thousands of people to tube down the ski jump hills within the week because of the holidays.
The park offers tubing on a large hill for those 10 and up for $20 and a small hill for those 5 years old and up for $15.
