Dade City’s Snowcat Ridge, which markets itself as Florida’s first and only alpine snow park, opened Wednesday with an added ice rink, private igloos for rent and upgraded food options.
The park has expanded its 400-foot-long snow tubing hill to add more lanes, and the 10,000-square-foot Arctic Igloo indoor snow play area will have 100,000 pounds of snow created daily. It plans to stay open through March 27.
The park’s new ice rink, known as Crystal Ribbon, is an outdoor skating rink with a beginner’s oval. Tickets for the park include two hours on the tubing hill and all-day access to the skating rink, though skates are not provided. Customers may bring their own or rent them for $9.95.
