The life of a snowflake starts with delicate, atmospheric crystal formation and ends with sudden mangling beneath the snowboards of teenagers. Discover how the summer season is treated with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $15 for three hours of summer tubing (a $30 value)
- $28 for three hours of summer tubing and one zorb ride (a $55 total value)
Zorbing allows adventurers sitting in a cushy globe to tumble down mountainsides while feeling weightless. There is no height or weight requirement for water zorbing, so tumblers of all sizes may enjoy a head-over-heels jaunt. Normal height and weight requirements apply for zorbing.
Woodbury Ski Area
In the past 40 years, the Southern Litchfield Hills of northwestern Connecticut have seldom stood without an echo of laughter or music. That's because Woodbury Ski Area keeps them pulsing with skiers and snowboarders during winter months and warm-weather revelers and concertgoers throughout the summer. Tubing slides run down the hills throughout the summer, along with zorb balls—inflatable spheres that carry passengers to the bottom in 45 seconds.
Woodbury Ski Area's president Rod Taylor, who competed as a member of the U.S. Ski Team, maintains the facility with the same drive he used to become the national downhill ski champion and record holder for clearing 222 feet in the Glendale Jump contest. While helping to keep adrenaline levels high, Rod ensures the facility hosts more laid-back cultural events with concerts on the Woodbury stage. Past shows have featured legends including The Wailers, Fela Kuti, and UB40, as well as Muddy Waters, The Band, Bonnie Raitt, and Earl Scruggs.
