I received this email from a Go Ask Mom reader the other day:
I know there are several places to try out snow tubing - if you have any experience or info other than my own Google searches, I'd like to read about it.
I grew up in upstate New York, not too far from ski slopes, but I've never excelled at any kind of snow sport beyond sledding and angel making despite repeated attempts by a high school boyfriend, who was an avid snowboarder.
I'm going to expand her question to include favorite skiing spots in North Carolina, Virginia and any other place that's within driving distance for a long weekend.
Do you have a favorite spot for snow tubing or skiing in the region? Are there places that cater to families?
