Get ready snow sliders!

Calgary’s only tube park is the largest of its kind in Western Canada and it opens for the season on Saturday, November 25.

Located at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park, The Acura Tube Park has gotten even bigger since last year; and now boasts 12 lanes, a four person tube option, and a dedicated magic carpet.

A village including a food trailer, a deck with heaters, a fire pit, and washrooms have also been added for the 2017 season.

The park is located on the main hill, which allows tubers to take advantage of the washrooms, eateries, retail store and other amenities located in the Frank King Day Lodge.

Tickets cost $28 for an adult to slide for two hours, and senior, youth, and family discounts are available.

The park will open Thursday through Sunday and every day through the holiday season (except for Christmas). Families can slide for free on Thursday and Friday evenings if they have a WinSport Annual Family Membership.
