“Really fun weekend!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

While 1/2 of our group was skiing (which they thought was awesome & possibly the new favorite ski spot) the other 1/2 of us went tubing @ Coca-Cola Tubing. It was super fun! It cost $20 for 1 hr. & we each got to slide about 6 or 7 times. There were lines each time & for half the hour there was only 1 line out of 4 open for adults. The staff at the top were all extremely friendly & helpful. After sliding, which you can do straight down, backwards, or with a small or really big spin, you grab your tube & ride back up a covered escalator lift to the top. There were people of all ages tubing, from children, (though they have to be a certain height which I don't remember) to Senior Citizens. It's very fast & a little nerve wracking at first but once you go you want to go again. Also, they only take a certain # of people every hour but you can buy your tickets early if you know when you want to go.

“Great week of spring skiing”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

The snow was great. Large enough to be not too crowded. Almost never a wait for the lifts. Varied terrain, pretty good grooming. Staff was generally pretty good. Cost reasonable. All in all, I look forward to my next return, though it may be a couple of years since I will seek variety. The tubing hill was mediocre, and many staff there were lethargic with annoying attitudes. Non skiers can purchase a $30 lift ticket between 11am and 2pm to ride the life to Sunspot restaurant for a lunch. The ticket provides a $15 discount on the lunch.

“Best Bumps in Colorado”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

I've skied at all of the ski areas in Colorado and Winter Park / Mary Jane is by far the best, especially if you like bumps. The ski area is laid out well, the people are friendly, the restaurants are great and the snow is awesome!

“Solo Ski trip”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

skiied here. I had a great time. The conditions were great. The view from Parsenns Bowl was amazing. You wont get bored skiing here. There is a good variation in slopes. To give me perspective Ive never skiied in the west. My previous ski trips were at Snowshoe in WV and Sugar Mountain in NC.

It was easy to get lost on the mountain. I felt there should have been more trail maps out there. But that could be my ammature perspective.

The cost of lift tickets were good I paid 140$ for a 3 day pass. the operation seemed efficient and staff was friendly.

Make sure you eat before you go though. I cheese burger fries and soda was damn near $18 at the Snoasis.

“No Discount”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We are Winter Park season pass holders so we took a couple friends with us to the tubing hill only to find out that our pass discount is ONLY good for a discount on the pass holder's rate. Not only was there no discount for our two friends, but they wanted to charge us FULL price for our 3 year old children. $22 for a 3 year old??? Really?? We are familiar with the area so we left and went tubing at Frasier Tubing hill. It was $15 for adults, and the children were free. WOW what a difference!! We had a great time and will NEVER be back to Coca Cola hill. If you are thinking your season pass is a better deal because of this discount, think again. Go to Frasier Tubing hill. They are nice and way better bang for your buck.
