A winter storm has many upsides: snow days, skiing, and the chance to follow deer back to the tree where they roost. Experience some winter magic with this Groupon.
$39 for a Cosmic-Snow-Tubing Night for Two ($78 Value)
On Fridays from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., cosmic tubing lets visitors ages 3 and older plunge down the mountain's designated snow-tubing lanes under the glow of black lights and laser lights as music pumps from the sound system. One-, two-, and four-person tubes send visitors flying at ever-increasing speeds, and a conveyor system lets legs relax all the way back up the slope.
In addition to Fridays, this Groupon is also valid from March 24 through March 28 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Mt. Hood Skibowl
Mt. Hood Skibowl may be known for its more than 960 skiable acres, but when the weather heats up, the spot transforms into the Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl. Visitors can take advantage of its more than 20 attractions, including a half-mile dual Alpine slide, a Malibu Raceway with Indy race go-karts, a bungee-jumping tower, and a mountain-biking park. Young adventurers can zipline across the park, climb a 30-foot rock wall, and play mini golf.
For those who prefer a more relaxed way to see the park, scenic sky chairs carry them above Mt. Hood National Forest. They can stroll the interpretive walking trails at the top, bike to a picturesque lake, or head even further up on the uppermost scenic sky chairs for great views of the Cascades and any Big Foots playing chess down below.
