DON'T LIKE EXCITING FOOTBALL? >>>
There's no joy quite as satisfying as the joy derived from a really good bitch session. And in times like these - winter, of course, what did you think we meant? Everything else is perfect, silly - complaining nonstop is really the only way to go. Especially if you're not a skier or snowboarder. But should you grow weary of kvetching (and there are reports of this happening, though they are about as common as the word kvetch), there is a cheaper, adrenaline-filled alternative: Tubing at Mount Rainier. Stop laughing. What could be better than careening uncontrollably in a glorified tire, down a freakin' massive rock loaded with hundreds of feet of snow? Not much, other than it's free after paying for a park pass for the day, which is $15 per vehicle.
Due to trees, rocks and people's heads, the snowplay area patrol at Paradise suggests using "soft" sliding devices - flexible sleds, inner tubes, and saucers. They'll get pissed if they see hard toboggans or runner sleds.
Let's take a look at today's weather at the Paradise's tubing area: Rain. The rain could be heavy at times. High near 41. Southwest wind around 16 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.
Hmmmm. Go Hawks!

Banff National Park is a breath of fresh air. A small mountain town with world class facilities...
Too many cover-bands play at The Swiss.
