With winter in full swing, many students may feel themselves getting a little stir crazy from being indoors. To combat this four-walls feeling, Mount Kato is offering a deal for students itching to get outdoors.
Mount Kato is hosting free tubing to any Minnesota State University, Mankato student with a MavCard from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. next Saturday. This is the third time the facility has provided free tubing for students according to the press release.
Not only will tubing be free (and freeing), but free shuttles will also be provided to anyone with a MavCard as well. The shuttles will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 11 p.m.
Two routes will be available for students. Route one will leave from Huntington Hills apartments, then will travel to pick up at Southwood Terrace Southwood lot, Preska Residence Hall, and the Alumni Building Parking lot. Route one will be about a 40-minute round trip.
Route two will begin at the Summit bus stop, then will travel to Stadium Heights, College Town, College Station Parking Lot, Briargate and Southridge Club House. This route will take about 60 minutes round trip.
If you would rather drive to the event instead of utilizing the shuttle, you can find Mount Kato at 20461 Hwy 66 Mankato, MN 56001.
Don’t forget to dress warm for the weather since the tubing will be outside, and we all know how Minnesota winters can be! If you do get cold, Mount Kato provides an indoor facility fit with concessions.
