Holiday Adventure: David & Cassie Go Skiing In OKC At Riversport Adventures' Winter Glow

Wednesday, December 8th 2021, 10:34 pm


This holiday season, you and your family can go skiing, ice skating and even ice climbing!

The best news is you don't even have to travel out of the city! David and Cassie checked out the brand new Winter Glow at Riversport Adventures.

Oklahoma is hardly known for its skiing but at Riversport Adventures Ski OKC, you can give it a try or sharpen your skills.

The slope adjusts to speed and incline. Low and slow for beginners or for a more experienced skier the slope adjusts all the way up to a black diamond level.

The special ski-grass is misted with water which creates the feeling similar to real snow.

According to the ski instructor, it is actually a better way to learn because the simulator doesn't allow you to pick up bad habits. Lessons are available for individuals and groups and Ski OKC and is included with your Winter Glow pass.

Winter Glow is a brand new tradition at Riversport.

“It’s something that allows us to take a summer fun destination and extend it throughout the year with these Nordic Adventures,” said executive director Mike Knopp.

Ice skating, curling and five climbing walls, including ice climbing, are also a part of the experience.

“It really follows that Riversport formula of getting people active. Doing things they didn’t typically think they could do in Oklahoma,” said Knopp.

It can work up an appetite, so the Big Water Grill is serving up hot chocolate and holiday snacks.

Winter Glow is open through January 9 but the Nordic experience will be open all winter. Admission is $19.99 for adults and $9.99 for kids.

Santa is out there on Saturdays and Sundays through December 19.
