Now you can go snow tubing just a short stroll from the Las Vegas Strip, once again proving that just about anything is possible in Sin City.

The Linq entertainment and retail district has opened a tubing hill in a parking lot behind the High Roller observation wheel. Through Dec. 28, snow bunnies can whoosh down a man-made, 30-foot-slope covered with snow.

Santa officially opened the ride by climbing atop a tube last Friday.

The attraction, called Winter Parq, is open 4-10 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and 2-10 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets cost $5 per ride or $20 for an all-day pass.

Self-parking is available beside the tubing hill. Free valet parking is also close by, adjacent to the Ferris wheel. Motorists should turn onto a street named the Linq from Flamingo Road, just east of Las Vegas Boulevard.

Adding to the holiday cheer, real snowflakes – from a machine, not the clouds – are falling every half-hour over the pedestrian mall. Strolling carolers are also on hand to entertain guests
