Add a few more letters, and you’d think the little yurt-shaped buildings just off I-80 near Jeremy Ranch make up an Italian cheese factory.
To be sure, Gorgoza Park is only the big cheese of sledding hills. Its goods offer a super fun family- and date-friendly winter activity. Here, you can rent a colorful tube, be effortlessly rope-towed to the top of a pretty Summit County hill, and plunge down any of seven groomed trails (some beginner, some advanced) … and laugh like you haven’t since you were a kid on a toboggan.
All you have to do is sign your life away (OK, just a waiver), hand over $8 for one ride, $19 for two hours of fun, or $27 for four die-hard hours, and the rest is winter memories in the making.
Gorgoza Park is open daily from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Once the sun goes down, the lights go on for nighttime tubing. It also offers mini snowmobile rides and a “Fort Frosty” park for youngsters. Learn more here.
The park address is 3863 W. Kilby Road. To get to there, exit I-80 at Jeremy Ranch (#141) and head east on the frontage road on the south side of the freeway.
