The tubing hill and terrain park are closed for the season. Check here for the cross-country ski trail conditions. 

The Winter Recreation Area in Elm Creek Park Reserve features a lighted tubing hill with lifts and snowmaking, a beginner-level downhill ski and snowboard hill*, and almost 18K of cross-country ski trails.

After the action, winter sports enthusiasts can warm their toes and grab a hot cocoa in the chalet. A blend of modern and rustic, the chalet provides equipment rental, concessions, public seating and a fireplace. In the summer, hikers, bikers and others use the chalet as a stopping point before hitting the trails. The chalet is also a popular spot for weddings and corporate events.
