How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Weekend Must Do's: Snow Mountain "Avalanche Alley" at Stone Mountain Park


The Christmas countdown has begun. Grab your the kids and brave the tubing hill together at Snow Mountain's Avalanche Alley. Atlanta's only snow-covered 400-foot tubing hill. Visiting Stone Mountain Park during Christmas has become a favorite family tradition of ours. I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly fun (and fast) is to slide down the hill. You laugh so hard that your belly hurts. The first time is the scariest, but then is all good. You want to do it over and over again. It gives you so much joy and happiness. Is like all your problems disappear as you roll down the hill. Snow mountain is something special and magical, and is one of those things that everyone must try, at least once in their lifetime.

After you finish tubing, head to the SnowZone to make snow angels, grab a bite at the SnoDeck, then head to Stone Mountain to enjoy a one of kind Christmas extravaganza with more than two million lights, live performances and activities such as:
