Need something to do this weekend? Try SNOW MOUNTAIN!!
Stone Mountain is the only place in Atlanta where you can enjoy tons of snow! Being in the South, we don't always get snow days, so this is a great place for fun winter-memory making with your family. This attraction features more than 20 snow-tubing slides, located on Stone Mountain's Laser Lawn. There is a family tube ride, called Avalanche Alley, as well as individual snow tubing. Guests must be 42 inches or taller to ride the single tube. For Avalanche Alley, guests must be 36 inches or taller. My oldest went with her boyfriend, and they had such a great time. And my little one, who is 8, loved the tubing too. This is some serious fun for all ages!
Bringing younger kids with you? They will really enjoy the Snow Zone ~ acres of fun can be found here for everyone in the family. Little Angels is designed for kids 3 and under - they can try tubing on Snoboggans to experience tubing at their level. The Snowball Shootin' Gallery is a great place to pack snowballs, then use them to shoot at crazy spinning, flipping targets! Igloo City is the place to build a fort, a tower or even your own city - all out of snow! There are friendly attendants nearby to help you, too. Visit Snowman Valley to create your own snow friend!! My kids loved the snow closet, where you will find scarves, hats and more to decorate your new pal. Fort Snow is a cool place for kidswho are under 54 inches. They can explore turrets, tunnels and slides! And when you have finished exploring all of the fun to be had here in Snow Zone, visit the SnoDeck for a hot chocolate or popcorn! Still too chilly? Head to SnoFire Point and roast some delicious ooey-gooey S'mores over a warm bonfire!
We had such a wonderful afternoon at Snow Mountain, and it was nice to have some fluffy white stuff to play in for a change! Don't forget to dress for snow - you will want a warm hat, coat, mittens and scarf, too! It really is cold out there in the snowy area! And make sure you take your camera - photo opportunities are everywhere, y'all!
Snow Mountain is open through February 20 on weekends and daily during school holidays. Just two more weekends left to enjoy this family-fun Atlanta tradition!
