I'm coming to snowtube with 4 tweens on Sunday. Where do I park? Do they need signed waivers from their parents? Thanks

There is plenty of free parking and a bus to bring you to the hill. No idea regarding the waivers, but I think there is one on their website that you can download and sign in advance
