Soldier Hollow

Photobucket
The other night I went with my church group to a wonderful place called- Soldier Hollow. I don't know a lot of people in my church group, so my sister and her boy were kind enough to come with me. Even though it was 0 degrees or less, we had an absolute blast.

Soldier Hollow has 5 or 6 different tubing tracks. You hook your tube up to the lift, it pulls you to the top of the very long hill, then you pick your track and head on down! Going down solo is fun but my favorites are always the group runs.

Some people thought I was crazy for bringing my camera with me, but I wanted to document this fun night! And I'm so glad I did.

I also love how fast you get going down this hill. Snow spraying in your face, distant "Whoops" of joy, and things that make you laugh so hard your side hurts (like a poor girl who fell down 6 times in a row. She didn't fall hard, so it was ok to think it was funny, yes??).

Maybe these aren't the best pictures in the world, but I love them just the same.

My height is always such a novelty. Everyone thought it was so funny how I could almost completely disappear into my tube.

After we had reached our cold limits, we ran into the lodge for soup, hot chocolate, and donuts. (don't mind that I look extremely scary in this picture)

If you're ever in Utah during the winter, Soldier Hollow is a must do.

I haven't been sledding in such a long time! This almost makes me want to go again...if only I didn't hate being cold so much!

How fun! The last time I went skiing (which was, I think, a good 3 or 4 years ago) they had a tube track going. I was just trying to remember if I actually went down it or not. I really don't remember--if I did, it was probably only once. But I'm sure it's lots of fun! I like that you took pictures too. Sure, they're blurry, but they accurately portray the moment : ]

Oh, and it's definitely okay to laugh at someone who falls--even if you don't know them. Seriously, someone falling or tripping is my weak spot. I'm usually very nice about people making fools of themselves and don't like to rub it in by laughing, but if someone falls or trips? Forget about it! I crack up every time. ; ]

THis looks like so much fun! I broke me wrist sledding on a tube when I was in high school and to this very day- I am scared to death of sledding :)

looks like fun! the one weekend we had enough snow to go sledding, my husband had a man cold. but we're supposed to get a dumping today, so maybe there will be enough for this weekend.

Tubing down snow slopes is SO much fun! Although, I'm scared of going too fast, so I use my feet to slow down...could you reach? I'd freak! :)

Amanda said...

Oh my word this looks beyond fun! Also I can hardly wait to be out there next week! Eeeeeee!

This looks like SO much fun! I really need to look up some tubing hills near me!
So here's a fun little tubing story haha. When I was little I went away to a snowy ranch with my girl scout group and some videographers/ photgraphers asked if one of my little friends and I would be in the promotional video and brochure for the ranch! We excitedly agreed and they set us up in a tube and sent the video guy down in the tube right in front of us, but our tube ended up completely crashing into him and wiping out ALL of his equipment! My 8 year old self wad mortified but we still got to be on the tubing brochure haha!
Happy Friday!
