This time of year the best thing is to get out and enjoy the weather that we do have here in Southern Minnesota.  Basically, embrace the snow and colder temperatures.  One of my favorite things to do is snow tubing.  Mostly because I don't downhill ski, snowmobile or snowboard.  So, tubing is the way to go for me.  It's fun!  It's fun in the Summer, too... but that's a whole different thing.

I found this snow tubing hill that is just about an hour and a half drive from Faribault.  It's located in Scandia- Eko Backen.  Apparently it's a picnic and wedding destination in the Summer, and the Winter it becomes this cool thing. They have 3 different hills with 2 tow lines, so the lines will be non-existent to very short, which is awesome!

The hours:

Visit Fridays 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturdays 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eko Bakken also has extended hours for school breaks!



Have fun this Winter!!
