Gorgoza Park Will Open For Tubing Tomorrow (Nov 21)
Gorgoza Park, the popular family winter sports center near Park City, will open for lift-served tubing and other activities tomorrow, Nov. 21. The park posted this on its Facebook page:

The park will open its mini snowmobile operation and other activities as snow conditions permit – hopefully within a couple weeks.

"It was amazing to see how memories of last year evaporated in one run Tuesday at Brighton," he said, referring to opening day at the Big Cottonwood Canyon resort, which again was Utah’s first to open this season.
