Snow Tubing at Scaly Mountain NC

January 21, 2013

We used to have two options for snow skiing in the area. Sky Valley was Georgia’s only ski resort, and it had four slopes, bunny slope, ski lifts, and a cozy lodge. Ski Scaly had a single, wide slope with ski lift and a restaurant to warm up in. Both offered daily equipment rentals. Both are now closed.

In their place is the Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center offering snow tubing this time of year. This picture was taken back in December 2012 when they first started blowing snow, but I passed by today and the place was packed with people tubing down the slopes!

I’ve never tried it, but they even offer summer tubing on artificial turf. It’s on my list…
