GRANBY – If you're having snow withdrawals, a trip to Snow Mountain Ranch might give you a quick winter fix.

A summer tubing hill that uses FLEX-SNOW – a material designed to look and feel like real snow – opened on Tuesday.

Trueman Hoffmeister of the YMCA of the Rockies says it is a first for Colorado.

"It's a summer tubing hill, so it's kind of a unique experience," he said. "We wanted guests to have that Colorado Rocky Mountain experience that you think about in the winter when you come visit us in the summer."

The tubing hill costs $35 a day. Guests staying at the ranch can go for free.
