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.
