When it comes to fun winter activities, we may be biased, but we truly feel that the Hudson Valley wins hands down! There is so much to do around here during every season and winter is a favorite among many of our guests! Whether you like to go ice skating, cross country skiing, winter hiking, snowshoeing, or skiing, there is an abundance of options all around our bed and breakfast in Salisbury Mills, NY. One activity we think you should try, and that is great for the whole family, is snow tubing! Thomas Bull Memorial Park is the place to go and we have all of the details for you below.
Thomas Bull Memorial Park is the second largest developed park in Orange County. It spans over 719 acres and offers visitors a golf course, driving range, tennis courts, horse riding area with stables, Arboretum, 5-acre pond for fishing, ball fields, boathouse, and more. In the winter, snow tubing is popular and it opens mid-January and remains available through the beginning of March. If you are a resident the fee is only $15 and for those out of town guests, the cost is $20 and tickets are good for a 90-minute session. This snow tubing park features an 800-foot snow-tubing hill with two cable lifts, smooth, groomed lanes, and specially designed tubes that are sure to give you a thrilling ride. The lanes ensure that riders stay in their designated area and really keeps everyone safe. There is a gorgeous lodge on the property as well where you can soak in some amazing views of the Hudson Valley and warm by the stone fireplace. You are also free to bring in your own drinks and snacks. The tubing hill is open Saturdays from 10am – 8pm and Sundays from 10am – 5pm. The hours of operation can be affected by weather so it is a good idea to check the website or call 845-457-4949 before you go to ensure they are open.
