It took approximately eight days with just the right weather conditions to make enough snow to groom the terrain that consists of five runs for skiing and snowboarding and a snow tubing hill that now has a Magic Carpet, a standing conveyor belt lift, which replaced the hill’s tow rope system.
“The tubing line is going to move much more efficiently and it’s going to be really neat to see how excited visitors are about riding the Magic Carpet,” said Dave Myers, Kewaunee County promotion and recreation director. “We should be able to accommodate approximately 150 snow tubers on the hill at any given time.”
Checks are not accepted at Winter Park. For updates on conditions, visitors can call the 24-hour hotline at 920.388.7199.
