Other activities at the Winter Park Ski Area

Snow Cat Tour: $17/person.
	This takes folks on a tour of the entire mountain area including
  both the ski areas and some of the restricted areas.  The Snow Cat
  is apparently an enclosed (and thus warm) way for a maximum of
  12 human beings to see the mountains.  You are welcome to bring 
  your own refreshments along.  This tour is 2 hours long, with 3 
  short stops along the way.  Tours leave at 10am, noon, and 2pm.  
Sun Spot Lodge Restaurant
	The "at the top of the mountain" restaurant.  Good food, great
  view, and high prices...the "in" place to be I'm told.  :-)
  Can only be reached by lift at $4/person.

Ice skating
	Skate rental is $2/hour.  No entrance charge for the rink itself.
Tubing hill 
	Actually located in Fraser City, about 2 miles from Winter Park.
	$8/hour for the rental of a tub and use of the runs.
	Seems there is night tubing!
