Thanks to Mother Nature dropping close to 5-inches of the white stuff last Sunday, just in time for a four-day weekend off school in Cloquet, the Tubing Hill at Pine Valley is opening this weekend!
The Hill will be open on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cost is $5 and concessions will be available for purchase at the chalet.
“We were starting to wonder if we would be able to open this year, but the snow came just in time,” said Ruth Reeves, Community Education director, noting that the hill didn’t open at all last year.
Reeves said the plan is to be open weekends through March 17 if the snow holds out or increases.
Tubing enthusiasts and sledders are asked to stay off the ski jumping hills as those have been groomed for the jumpers.
