The Hiram Hi
Hiram Day at Polar Blast Snow Tubing
Polar Blast Snow Tubing
Last year over 100 alumni and their families braved the cold and snow for an exhilarating day on the slopes with Hiram. We had so much fun that we decided to go back again this year!

You and your gang will enjoy the special price of $15 - that's $10 off the regular price of admission! If you can sit in a tube, you can ride the slopes! There's even a people-mover that takes you to the top of the hill.
