Florida’s first snow park, featuring a 400-foot-long tubing hill, opens next month

Real snow ... in Florida.


Tickets are now on sale for Florida’s first ever snow park.

Snowcat Ridge Alpine Snow Park is slated to open on Nov. 20, with ticket prices ranging from $24.95-$39.95. As a part of the park’s preseason ticket sale, attendees can use the promo code SNOW10 to get 10% off.

Snowcat Ridge features a massive snow tubing hill, an Alpine Village, and a ten thousand square foot snow dome. The snow tubing hill is 60 feet tall and 400 feet long, with “a magic carpet lift that will whisk riders and their snow tubes to the top of the hill,” according to Snowcat Ridge’s website.

The park, which features real snow, also has a child-sized snow hill for young riders and a magical light show during evenings.

Snowcat Ridge is about a 40-minute drive from Tampa in Dade City at 27839 Saint Joe Rd. Tickets can be purchased online at snowcatridge.com.
