What You'll Get
Man has always struggled to experience the sensation of flight, which is why most pilots got their start wearing cardboard wings while speeding downhill in inner tubes. Earn your wings with today’s Groupon to Woodbury Ski Area. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get three hours of fall tubing (a $30 value)
- For $28, you get downhill-fun package (a $55 value), which includes:
- Three hours of fall tubing (a $30 value)
- One zorba-ball ride (a $25 value)
Woodbury Ski Area’s summer and fall activities cater to adrenaline aficionados and amateurs alike. Hop into an inner tube and soar down two tubing lanes made of artificial turf for three hours, weaving carefully around trees and unemployed bridge trolls. Afterward, feel free to try zorba-ball surfing, wherein humans strap themselves into a giant inflatable hamster ball as it careens and spins down a hillside. To learn more, prospective earth surfers can see the sport in action in an informative video on the ski area's website.

About 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.
