PASCO COUNTY, Fla.- Coming soon to Dade City, Pasco County, Snowcat Ridge will be the first Florida Snow Park of its kind featuring snow tubing, snow play, and an Alpine Village.
Snowcat Ridge will include a 60-foot-tall, 400-foot-long snow tubing hill, along with a magic carpet lift which will whisk riders and their snow tubes to the top of the hill. Guests will be provided with single, tandem, and 6-person family tubes to slide down the snow-covered slope.
According to their website, after a few hours on the snow tubing hill, riders can make snowmen or snow castles with REAL snow inside of the snow dome. And, for the very young riders, we’ll have a child-sized version of our snow hill, located inside of our snow dome.
Snowcat Ridge will also light up the night with a light show on both the snow hill and in the snow dome, a definite first for Florida.
With a goal of opening in November 2020, Snowcat Ridge said in a Facebook post, “We’ve been getting a lot of questions about our November 2020 opening date… Don’t worry, we’re VERY hard at work at building the park and we’re still on track for a November 2020 open date!”
We took a cruise out to Dade City to see the progress for ourselves, and this place is going to be a blast. Construction is well underway for Florida’s first snow park.
We’ve reached out to Snowcat Ridge to get an update on an opening date and will update this story when we have that information.
