Tyrol Basin and National Construction marked the completion of a warming house for the winter sports park’s new snow tubing runs with a ribbon cutting Friday, January 17.
The 4,050 square foot Sprung Structure features a bar, concession stand, lounge, lockers, bathrooms, vestibule with storage for coats, office and ticket sales area. Large viewing windows span the width of the structure and overlook the seven-plus-lane, 700-foot long lighted tubing run complete with a conveyor system to move tubers back up the hill.
Tyrol Basin Owner Nathan McGree, who purchased the property in August 2018, cut the ribbon and thanked the National Construction team, subcontractors, his lender, and all involved for their support throughout the project.
Jeff Grundahl, owner of National Construction, thanked Nathan and his wife Autumn for the opportunity to be a part of their exciting project and complimented them on the wonderful improvements that they’ve made to the hill thus far. “I’m excited to see the energy and vision that Nathan and Autumn and their team has. The tubing hill is transformational not only for the winter sports park but for the community.” National Construction will be donating snow tubing tickets to students in trades classes at Mount Horeb and Barneveld High Schools to commemorate the project’s completion.
The tubing hill opened January 10 and is located beyond the upper parking lot at 3487 Bohn Road in Mount Horeb. Hours are 4-9pm Tuesdays, 4-11pm Fridays, 9am-9pm Saturdays, and 9am-5pm Sundays. Tickets for all ages are available at the warming house and are $15 for a four-hour session. Tubes are provided. For more information, visit tyrolbasin.com/tubing.
