Worth Heading to Wirth
This sprawling, well-kept 700-acre urban park offers cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skijoring, cycling, and running trails, beyond the snowboarding and tubing. The kid-friendly tubing hill comes with a tow rope to make getting up the hill quick, and the ticket includes the park's specially designed tubes for optimal enjoyment. The snowboarding hill is one of the first to be established in the region, and is perfect for beginners and those learning the sport. Boards are available to rent for an additional fee. There's even nighttime lighting and snowmaking machines in both areas.
