The installation and inspection of the Magic Carpet at Winter Park in Kewaunee County is a wrap. Now, all that’s needed for the Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Department to put its five snow guns to use to create the perfect conditions for snow tubing, skiing and snowboarding, is for the temperature to drop below 20-degrees.
The Magic Carpet is a standing conveyor belt lift located at the six-lane snow tubing hill, which has a 220-foot slope with a 70-foot vertical drop and an approximate 17-degree pitch.
“Kewaunee County has the only snow tubing hill in northeast Wisconsin to have a Magic Carpet and it’s a great feature to have for the thousands of people who visit the park, you stand on it with your tube and enjoy the ride up the hill,” said Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Director. “We expect to become busier than ever before, of course with the cooperation of Mother Nature.”
