The trip includes eight hours of snow tubing at the Heritage Hills Resort, a concert featuring Mark DeRose Band and Huck and a free buffet.

Due to the snowstorm the weekend of Feb. 5-6, the trip was rescheduled for Feb. 20-21. CUB representatives wanted to reduce the ticket price of $70 per person due to the cancellation and inability of many original participants to go on the new date. The ticket price remains the same and the bus departs at 8 a.m. on Feb. 20 and returns at 9 p.m. on Feb. 21.
