Snow Tubing

Way back in Nov 2009 we went tubing at Norquay.  It was a great time so when a friend here told us about a tubing hill at a resort close to Almaty I figured we should go.  Turned out a big group from Chevron got together and we went with 8 adults (plus 1 adult bodyguard) and 6 children.  The tubing was a Ak-Bulak which is a small ski hill about 1 1/2 hours from Almaty.  Not quite the same as Norquay but equally fun.  Frank even brought along skiis and tried out the hill for a few runs (you can buy a pass here for a certain number of runs!)  Here's some photos of the tubing fun:

I say we will go again but I said that about Norquay as well and we never made it back.  I hear they have a great tubing park in Salt Lake City - maybe we'll just keep trying new ones.
