It’s nearly Christmas and Winnipeg has yet to receive a large accumulation of snow. Despite the warmer than normal temperatures and lack of the white stuff, Adrenaline Adventures was open for business over the weekend.
The popular winter sports park just on the outskirts of city limits has been making their own snow for the past three weeks, creating ideal conditions for their four-lane snow tubing hill just west of the Perimeter Highway.
“We’ve been working diligently on creating a good, solid base,” owner Jason Rohs said on Saturday. “We’re good to go.”
Rohs says the mild weather doesn’t impact conditions on the hill, rather making it more enjoyable for visitors to come out for the day.
“Now is the best time to come out and enjoy the activities, when you can literally do it in a sweater and a toque if you want.”
It’s the second season for Adrenaline Adventures, which doubles as a wakeboarding park in the summer. The privately-funded facility has also built a two-storey clubhouse on its site this season, featuring concessions, a restaurant, bar, pro shop and space to accommodate private bookings, such as birthday parties or other events. In the summer months, visitors will be able to enjoy an outdoor patio overlooking the park, which can handle up to 120 people.
While snow tubing is the only sport currently offered, snowboarding, xorbing, and ice skating are also on the way. The status of all activities will be updated on AdrenalineMB.com.
