WINTER PARK, Colo. (AP) -- Skiers are taking out their inner tubes because of a lack of snow in the Colorado mountains.

Tubing park marketing director Lisa Boyes says her facility near the Winter Park ski resort is getting a lot of people who are not skiing and snowboarding this year.

Boyes tells the Denver Post the park's snowmobile rides are also busy.

The snowpack statewide was 73 percent of the long-term average at the beginning of the year.
