We finally have more bearable temperatures, plus some snow on the ground, so today is a great day to take the family to Gateway Parks Alpine Hills for plenty of wintertime fun!

Alpine Hills Adventure Park, located at 4402 Larson Ave. in Rockford, is normally closed on Mondays, but since the kids are off school today for President's Day they are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Your kids will have a blast tubing, skiing or snowboarding down the hills of Gateway Park, and parents, I promise that you will have a blast joining them down the hills too!

Alpine Hills admission is $8 for residents, $10 for non-residents, kids 3 and under are free, and so are parents on Monday, February 15 in honor of President's Day!

Think you are too old to have fun tubing? No way! Just look how much fun Jonny J and I had at Alpine Hills when it opened last year...
