Two teenage girls were critically injured when they hit a tree while tubing down a ski slope at Deer Valley Resort Monday night. The girls, who were staying at a condo in Deer Valley, were tubing down the Success Run ski hill after the resort had closed the mountain.
Tubing and sledding are not allowed at the resort. A spokesperson said the mountain is very steep and doesn’t lend itself well to that type of activity. She said tubing and sledding are entirely different sports than skiing and require controlled environments. When people ask about tubing, the resort will advise them to go to Gorgoza Park not from the resort, which has a tubing hill.
