Boyce Park Ski Slopes and Snow Tubing Area to Open Friday, December 6

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Parks Department today announced that the Boyce Park Ski Slopes and Snow Tubing Area will open for the season on Friday, December 6, and operate through mid-March, weather and conditions permitting.  Those planning to go to Boyce Park are encouraged to check snow conditions and operational status beforehand.  A 24-hour recording is available by calling 724-733-4665.  For general information during regular hours, call 724-733-4656.

For the first time, admission fees, passes and rentals have a two-tiered structure for residents and non-residents. To allow residents and visitors the opportunity to experience the slopes with the new snow guns, and to encourage frequent returns to the Boyce Park area, the resident rate will be offered to everyone for the first week of the season.
