Thanks to everyone who joined us last weekend for sled tubing! It was a lot of fun! 😎 Unfortunately, the warmer temps are quickly melting the bit of snow that we had at the Elko SnoBowl. If a decent snowfall heads our way, we will be sure to provide another SnoBowl update right here on our FB page. 🌨🙏

😎❄️ MORE SNOW TUBING TOMORROW!! ❄️😎

Today is going so well that the Elko SnoBowl will have tube sledding on the bunny hill again tomorrow, Sunday, January 10! We have special tubes that will pull you up the bunny hill and send you smiling and sliding all the way down the hill for another ride! Lots of FUN!

Unless more snow comes, tomorrow will be the LAST DAY. Due to health restrictions and a limited number of tubes, we will only have 10 tubes on the hill every 50 minutes (at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, and 2:00). There are only 60 time slots for the day so be sure to reserve yours now. You will need to prepay and reserve a time slot at https://elkorec.activityreg.com/selectactivity_t2.wcs Please arrive a few minutes early to check in at the front window of the lodge.

Tubes and sleds from home will not be permitted on the bunny hill. Skis and boards will not be permitted at all. Behind the lodge will be a gloomed hill for you to enjoy your sleds from home.

Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. The lodge will be closed to foot traffic. We will be renting tubes through the front window. No snacks or refreshments will be sold, so bring some goodies from home and enjoy some cozy tail gating with the family.

The road to SnoBowl may be muddy in spots. Please drive cautiously and considerately.

Please share this post to let others know. 📣😀

🚨😎❄️ ELKO WINTER FUN ALERT!! ❄️😎🚨

For the FIRST TIME EVER the Elko SnoBowl will have tube sledding on the bunny hill tomorrow, Saturday, January 9! We have special tubes that will pull you up the bunny hill and send you smiling and sliding all the way down the hill for another ride! This was something we were able to create just in time for tomorrow, so DON’T MISS OUT.

This might be a ONE DAY EVENT only. Due to health restrictions and a limited number of tubes, we will only have 10 tubes on the hill every 50 minutes (at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, and 2:00). There are only 60 time slots for the day so be sure to reserve yours ASAP. $15 per tube/time. Families are welcome to reserve multiple tubes/times or share one tube/time between multiple family members. You will need to prepay and reserve a time slot at https://elkorec.activityreg.com/selectactivity_t2.wcs Please arrive a few minutes early for your time in order to check in at the front window of the lodge.

Tubes and sleds from home will not be permitted on the bunny hill. Skis and boards will not be permitted at all. Behind the lodge will be a groomed hill for you to enjoy your sleds from home.

Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. The lodge will be closed to foot traffic. We will be renting tubes through the front window. No snacks or refreshments will be sold, so bring some goodies from home and enjoy some cozy tail gating with the family.

2021, please send snow! 🙏❄️❄️❄️

We still need more snow in order to open up the beginner hill and accompanying rope tow at the Elko SnoBowl this season. Keep your fingers crossed, Elko. Hopefully the next few weeks bring enough precipitation for us to make some turns on the bunny hill. 🤞🤞

12/14/2020

Snow enthusiasts, it looks like we had some decent snowfall last night! ❄️🥳

Unfortunately, the Elko SnoBowl ski lift is currently undergoing significant mechanical repair with one of the main drive elements. Therefore, it is unlikely that the ski lift will be operational this season. However, if the repairs conclude sooner than expected, we will be sure to provide an update. ⚙️🛠

In the meantime, we do intend to operate our beginner hill and accompanying rope tow starting the first weekend of January 2021, weather depending, and continuing for as many weekends as we can. Rope tow passes will be sold for $5 and ski/board rental packages for $20. ⛷🏂

Covid-19 restrictions will be adhered to, so please bring a mask and practice social distancing while in line for rentals or the rope tow. Be sure to plan for some cozy tailgating in the parking lot, as our ski shack will be closed to indoor foot traffic. Passes and rentals will be serviced through the front window. 🚙🎟

Due to operational restrictions and health concerns, our junior ski/board lessons will be postponed until next year. 😷📆

Stay tuned for more Elko SnoBowl updates as we get closer to January! ⛄️📣

Public Service Announcement: Mosquito Spraying

Mosquito Spraying

The City of Elko Parks Department is planning its annual areal application for the abatement of mosquitoes in late June, early on Wednesday morning June 24, 2020. Should weather conditions require postponement of the application (must be applied in the early morning with temperatures above 50F, and with winds less than 10 M.P.H.), we have reserved the following day June 25, 2020, as a backup date. We will be planning our secondary application on Thursday July 2, 2020 and have the next day, Friday July 3, 2020 reserved as a backup day if conditions are not correct. As the insecticides to be applied are toxic to bees, we encourage any beekeepers in the area to take necessary precautions.

Areas to be treated include the Humboldt River Corridor, Elko City Cemetery, Ruby View Golf Course, all City Parks, The Elko Regional Airport, and the Water Treatment Facility. We also encourage everyone in the area to assist with mosquito abatement efforts by emptying any stagnant water from tires, boats, buckets, etc. as these areas are the perfect breeding ground for these pests.
