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.
