Kewaunee’s Winter Park making snow for ski, snowboard, tubing season
KEWAUNEE – Snow has begun flying at Winter Park, whether or not it's falling from the sky.
That's because the Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation staff temporarily fired up the snow guns last week to begin making white stuff for the recreational skiers, snowboarders and snow tubers to fly down its hills this winter.
The job typically takes a few weeks to complete with temperatures below freezing before the park can officially open for use.
“We’re not expecting to open until late December at the earliest, but we wanted to take advantage of the cold snap that we’re experiencing now to get an adequate base of snow,” Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Director Dave Myers said.
Winter Park offers five snow tubing lanes with a Magic Carpet lift for transportation to the top of the hill; five skiing/snowboarding runs equipped with a T-bar lift; and a beginner-friendly hill that is expected to have a tow rope system in place for the upcoming season.
With the Magic Carpet debuting last season, the park set a new record for attendance, with more than 11,000 visitors from 20 different states who schussed or slid down the hills in the nine weeks it was open from December to February.
