In the winter months, Florida often becomes the temporary home of many Northerners seeking refuge from bitter cold temperatures. These sun-seeking snowbirds choose sand and sea over snow and ski, but soon they’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds, alongside locals looking for a wintry escape. This month, Florida will welcome its first and only snow amusement park.
Located on Florida’s Sports Coast, Snowcat Ridge is an alpine-style park, bringing wintry vibes and activities without the freezing temperatures. Sprawled out over 50 acres of forest and pasture, Snowcat Ridge will keep guests entertained with three attractions: Arctic Igloo, Alpine Village, and Snowy Slopes, the main star of the show. Snowy Slopes is a snow tubing hill measuring 60 feet tall and over 400 feet long. Guests can take their seat in a single, tandem, or six-person family tube as the magic carpet lift pulls them on a peaceful ride to the top. Then it’s time for the adrenaline-filled slide down the snow-covered hill.
