Winter has officially arrived in Canada and, depending on where you are in the country, you've been experiencing some super chilly and snowy days so far. It's just a matter of time before the streets are covered with piles of fluffy snow and the temperature is below 0 degrees every day.
But even though that may not sound super appealing to some people, winter really is one of the most magical times of the year! There's something about the stunning Canadian landscape when it's covered in snow that completely transforms it into a real-life winter wonderland.
If you want to experience a winter adventure like no other you've got to visit The Acura Tube Park which is one of the largest snow parks in all of Canada!
The Acura Tube Park is located at WinSport's Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta! Snow tubing is one of the best winter activities in Canada and this is definitely the best place to do it. They have 10 lanes to choose from and each of them is 200 meters long!
Each of these 10 lanes has different speeds and steepness so if you want to start off on the slower hill and work your way to the fastest that's a good plan to have the most exciting day! The tubes fit one person each but you can choose to slide down the lanes with your friends at the same time.
It costs $16.99 for the weekends and $10.99 for their weekday evenings. Even though tubing during the day is obviously super fun, the best time to come is for late night tubing during the week! They're open from 5-7:30 pm on Thursdays and Fridays every week of the season so you can tube after dark.
If you want to come during the day you can visit on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am until 5 pm and 1-7 pm on some Fridays. Make sure you dress warmly in your winter coats, scarves, hats, even ski masks on snowier days!
The park is also home to some other winter activities like a winter bobsleigh, a luge, the skeleton, public skating, public shinny, and skiing and snowboarding hills! If you want to experience some new and exciting winter activities this is definitely the best place to go.
