Snolympics: The best kind of Snow Day

Tuesday I was lucky enough to be invited to the Indians Snow Days Media Day. Not only could I tube down the Batterhorn, skate around the Frozen Mile and frolic in the fake snow, I participated in the Cleveland Snolympics!

Basically all the Cleveland media outlets (TV, radio & internet) competed in a 4-legged race! It was a tad disorganized, but it was meant to be fun. After my coworker slid down the Batterhorn, I ran a 20 yard dash (in boots mind you) and then 2 other c.com-ers ice skated their way to the finish line.

The TV guys were quite competitive.

The Batterhorn. This was FUN...you went faster than you'd think.

Onion, my boss, ketchup, you know who, mustard & Julie!

This is such a creative idea at Progressive Field, I feel so fortunate to have gotten a sneak peak. If you have kids, take them, they will love it! Even if you don’t have kids, this provides some adult fun, too! They have typical ballpark fare along with healthier options such as salads and turkey sandwiches. Beer is also available for purchase :)

PRICING
General Admission: $5 (Provides access to Slider’s Snow Mountain, Winter Haven, Food/Beverage and all other Indians Snow Days activities with the exception of snow tubing and ice skating)
Frozen Mile (Ice Skating): $10 (Unlimited ice skating, including skate rental and General Admission access)
Batterhorn (Snow Tubing), presented by RTA: $20 (Two hour Batterhorn session and General Admission access)

***Please note- Children under three years old are free but not permitted on the Batterhorn.

Tip: Make sure you dress appropriately! I pulled a major ameatuer move by not bundling up. When I left the house Tuesday morning it was 58 degrees! Regardless of the outside temp, the snow and ice absolutely cool down Progressive Field. Pack mittens, scarves and hats!

Want to take a ride down the Batterhorn? Join me :P (Don’t mind the horrible camera angles, my thumb and my boots!)
