Go downhill skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing at Mt. Chinguacousy Ski and Snowboard Hill (all winter)
Gather the troops and hit the slopes for a day filled with skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing. Never skied or snowboarded before? Lessons are available for you, otherwise, you could try snow tubing (no experience required) or you could stay warm inside their cozy chalet.
