Snow park to close for season this Sunday
ROCKFORD — Rockford Park District’s Snow Park at Alpine Hills will close for the season Sunday, March 4.
“It’s been a great second season, with more than 4,000 guests of all ages from around the region and as far away as Missouri, Texas, and even Mexico enjoying the park’s activities and amenities,” Operations Manager Becky Stokes Lambert said.
Because of unseasonably higher temperatures and humidity, the park has adjusted its hours, and will be open 5-8 p.m., Friday, March 2. Hours on Saturday and Sunday are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Snow Park at Alpine Hills is at 4402 Larson Ave. It is divided into separate tubing and terrain park sections designed to accommodate riders of all abilities. The surface lift brings tubers and boarders to the top of the hill, so more time is spent riding down, and less time hiking up. Tubes are provided. No outside tubes are allowed. Limited snowboarding equipment is available to rent. More information is at alpinehillsadventure.com. R.
