When to go: Snow Mountain is open weekends (and certain holidays) through March 6, 2011. It is open all day this week through January 3, 2011 for the kids on winter break. Check the website for specific hours open each day. Note that the temperature, wind and precipitation each affect the speed of Snow Tubing. Younger and/or more timid guests may prefer the mid-day sessions when tubing conditions are generally more moderate.
What to wear: Boots, gloves, and winter coats are essential. Hats/ear muffs, scarves, and snow pants are useful and may be necessary on unusually cold days. The snow is wet, cold, and slippery so bring an extra set of clothes, especially for the kids. Stone Mountain does offer lockers for rent, or simply pack extras in a backpack and keep it with you.
