Brittney is here to tell you some things NOT to do about Gorgoza Park. Be sure to check out 4 things TO DO on our past post here!

1. Don't NOT go when sunny.

Apparently when snow is falling, it’s pretty impossible to tube. We probably picked the absolute worst day of the season to try tubing at Gorgoza. The snow makes the hill sticky and the tubes just don’t move. On a good run, you could only make it half-way down the hill. It’s just not the best idea to go on a day when the snow is falling. Gorgoza can't control the weather, call ahead if the weather is questionable.

2. Don't NOT Take your kids

We opted to leave our kids home with a babysitter so we could really enjoy the hill. But I regret that decision. They have so many fun things our kids would have loved. Granted, most of them weren’t running since it was such a snowy day, but if we would have taken them, they would have had the time of their lives. There is a hill portion for kids which is half the length of the bigger hill. They also have tiny snow machines for kids to drive around and the most adorable little tube merry go round.

3. Don't NOT Use the Lodge

Even though we went on a snowy day it really wasn’t that cold. But man, the warming yurt is a perfect place to get toasty. It’s super cozy and the most perfect temperature. If we didn’t have to get home to our kids, I could have stayed in there all day.
