School bus rolls over; 16 people taken to hospitals

Snow Mountain is back at Stone Mountain Park


From Nov. 18 to Feb. 25, Stone Mountain Park will once again have snow. Man-made snow, but still. 

Here’s how the folks at the park pitch it:

“Snow tubing in GA? Yep, we have it! Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park is a winter wonderland full of real snow! With a 400-foot tubing hill and two moving sidewalks to take you back to the top, your snow session will be packed with fun.”

Snow Mountain offers single tubes, double tubes, and “family-sized” tubes, so says the park’s public relations department, that can accommodate up to eight guests at a time.

Tubing is offered in 2-hour sessions and pre-purchased tickets are highly recommended to guarantee your spot on the date and time of your choosing. 

The Snow Zone play area is included with a tubing session and is available during operating hours.
