Finding snow in the Lake Travis area is not easy. You may have visited the Hill Country Galleria for a snow day in December, but busting out a snowboard or skis to get warmed up before your spring skiing trip to the mountains is not happening. Until now … there’s a place not too far from here that you can make some turns or take the kids tubing. The Texas Ski Ranch in New Braunfels opened up a new feature this past summer — the TSR Snowpark.
You can get there by jumping on I-35 and heading south, or if you’re traveling from the Lake Travis area there’s the option to take the scenic route without adding too much time. Take the road less traveled for this Lake Travis area excursion by following Hamilton Pool Road to Hwy 12, head into Wimberley and through Dripping Springs.
