Sliding Down The Chesapeake Energy Snow Tubing Hill In North Richland Hills
Just a couple days ago I was blogging a lament about the lack of snow and the lack of mountains anywhere near where I am currently located.
So, what did I learn, just minutes ago?
In only 4 days, on December 3, I am going to be within only about 8 miles of a snow covered mountain.
Mount Chesapeake is a hill covered with real authentic certified snow. I believe this snowy mountain will be located at the NRH20 waterpark.
The summit of Mount Chesapeake is 12 feet above the mountain's base. From the summit there will be 3 lanes for riding an inner tube down the mountain for 110 feet.
I do not know if these inner tubes are being borrowed from the Trinity River Vision Rockin' the River Happy Hour Inner Tubes Floats. If they are, you might want to bring along a sanitizer to sanitize the tube before you touch it.
You have to be at least 42 inches tall to ride this mountain.
The Mount Chesapeake Energy Snow Tubing Hill will be open for sliding from 3 pm til 9 pm. It will only cost $2 per person to slide down the hill. I'm guessing this is to help pay for the chair lift ride to the summit.
The Mount Chesapeake Energy Snow Tubing Hill is just one part of the City of North Richland Hills 12th Annual Night of Holiday Magic.
I wonder if I paid the 2 bucks if I would be allowed to ski down the mountain on my cross country skis?
