I want to go tubing!

Too much snow delays opening of Bear Paw Ski area

Associated Press

HAVRE - The Bear Paw Ski Bowl south of here has too much snow to open this weekend as scheduled. Hill manager Dave Martens said the facility isn't ready.

"We can't even get out there. With that much snow, it's going to take us three days to pack it."

The 40 inches of snow that fell last weekend was the biggest snowfall in more than 20 years. Martens said the area should be able to open the weekend of Jan. 10-11.

At the Pah-Nah-To Recreational Park, the Screaming Beaver Tubing Slide may open on Thursday, but it also may be closed until the second weekend in January, said Jason Belcourt.

He's the project coordinator for the Rocky Boy Recreation Tourism Project, which oversees the park.

Given the lack of snow-plowing at my apartment complex and my temp job, I know of a few places where you can "tube"!!!

Yeah, I was very close to the Bear Paws when all that snow dumped out of the sky. It delayed my travel plans by a day. I wanted to go sledding, but we were too busy digging out nine vehicles.
