January Quarterly Snow Tubing at Chicopee Tube Park

January Quarterly: Snow Tubing at Chicopee Tube Park

 

For our first team-building, quarterly event of the year, we

went snow tubing at Chicopee Tube Park.

 

For anyone that’s unfamiliar with snow-tubing, it’s essentially a fun ride down a long, snowy slope while being in a cushy, safe tube. It was a great afternoon to go tubing, thankfully there was a decent amount of snow that fell a few days before and it wasn’t blisteringly cold that night. It was still a little bit chilly though so we came prepared with thick jackets, scarves, gloves, boots, ski goggles and balaclavas. Some of us also wore protective helmets.

One of the aspects that I enjoy the most about our quarterly events is that we see a fun side of each other that we might not see during day-to-day work hours. It’s exhilarating going down the slope with lots of chances of spinning, speedy sliding and goofiness, which brings out the jokes and laughter between all of us. It’s particularly funning watching everyone’s reactions when they were abruptly stopped by hay-bags at the bottom of the slopes.

 

To kick the event off we started with a very impressive link of nine tubers. Yes, you heard that right! By holding onto each other’s tube handles we formed a link of tubes. All nine of us at the same time went down the slope very swiftly. After that we also tried groups of three or two.

 

We also had a race of who could fly down the hill the fastest. Sean S. was first with an impressive time of approximately 18 seconds, Ryan came in second and I was third. We found out that technique had a lot to do with how fast one can go.

 

Thanks very much to Rob and the employees at Chicopee Tube Park for such a fun afternoon!
