Our Trip To Camelback #MyCamelback

* Disclosure: My family was provided complimentary passes in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own *





A few weekends ago my family and I had the opportunity to pack up the car and head to Camelback for a weekend filled with snowboarding, tubing and some quality family time.

Camelback opened in 1963 and offers 34 named trails, 16 lifts, 100% snow making and is the largest snow tubing park in the US!

Just 90 minutes from NYC, Camelback is the place to go for all of your winter family fun!

Saturday the boys spent the day taking snowboard lessons and snowboarding.

Branden and Hubs went for snowboarding lessons where Hubs learned that he is not quite the spring chicken he used to be.



Snowbaording and skiing lessons are offered and last about an hour and half. Hubs and Branden took the lessons, grabbed some lunch and hit the slopes. Well, they hit the bunny trails! There are 1,200 plus snowmaking guns along the trails. That's enough snowmaking to cover Giants Stadium!


  Don't have a snowboard or skis? Camelback also offers rental equipment for snowboarding as well as skiing for a very reasonable price.

The boys had a blast snowbaording and cannot wait to go back! Well, Branden can't wait to go back and snowbaord, Hubs said he's going to stick to skiing.





Camelback also offers snowtubing, which we did Sunday before heading home. Talk about fun!



The snowtubing park is the biggest one in the US and has up to 42 tubing chutes. My favorite thing besides the fun flying down the lane? The magic carpet lift! No more walking up those hills!



The kids had so much fun snowtubing. Even little Amelia went tubing

.


My only complaint about tubing was there didn't seem to be enough single tubes and people were getting a little cranky about it.

We had no problem since we used double tubes more so each kid had an adult to go down with if they wanted.

I would recommend taking the 9am session since it seemed to be a little less crowded. Each session is 3 hours on the weekend/Holidays and unlimited during the week,



If you are looking for some quality family time, Camelback has everything you need.

This Spring, Camelback Lodge will open with an amazing indoor waterpark, Aquatopia. 
Some features of the new Lodge are
  • Ski-In Ski-Out Bar & Outdoor Patio
  • 170,000 Square-Foot Indoor Family Entertainment Center
  • Aquatopia, The Largest Indoor Water Park In The Northeast
  • Family Arcade & Game Center
  • Indoor Ropes Course
  • 9-Hole Mini-Golf
  • Laser Tag Arena
  • Laser Maze
  • Kids Club Activity Center
Our family can't wait until Camelback Lodge and Aquatopia are open.
