Buckskin Hills Ski and Snow Tubing Hill Grand Opening on Saturday
By Kristin Forbis, Jan 15, 2021
Uintah County wants all to join in some new local fun, declaring that “the time has finally come for a new generation of memories to be made on the local hills outside of Vernal.” The Buckskin Hills Ski and Snow Tubing Hill is having their grand opening today at noon with food, vendors, and music. The recreation area is divided by a tow rope to use to get to the top of the hill. The left side of the hill is for tubing, and the right side of the hill is for skiing and snowboarding.” There is also a small hill on the very south end of the hill (the bunny hill) to use personal equipment. To use any hill a waiver is required and a fee of $10 per person or $25 per family (tubes included in cost) will be charged at the entrance. “This is a recreation area that the entire community can use and be proud of,” shares Uintah County. “We will have fire pits for keeping warm and food truck concessions available to purchase. We can just hear the stories that are going to be shared for years to come.” Visit the Buckskin Hills Ski and Snow Tubing Hill Facebook page for more information.
