First there was skiing, then snowboarding–and now Snow Balling? For the first time this winter, Windham Mountain in upstate New York has introduced the Snow Ball at its Adventure Park. As the name implies, the Snow Ball lets you tumble down a hill like you’re a hamster. (Apparently the ski resort doesn’t have the rights to the term Zorbing, which is a popular New Zealand activity of the same concept.)
Located about 2 hours from New York City in the northern Catskills, Windham is a family-friendly ski resort with tubing, ice skating, and the Big Air Bag, where wanna-be Shaun Whites can practice aerial jumps.
When the weather warms up, the resort plans to keep the Snow Ball going by letting you roll down a grass-covered hill. I wonder if they’ll have to rename it.
Details: $20 per person, up to two people at a time.
