What is snow tubing


snow tubing

Snow Tubing involves riding a rubber tube down the side of a snow-packed hill on a winding course containing bumps, jumps, banked turns and rollers. Participants ride individually or in groups of up to four.

Two snow tubing parks are located at Mount Peter Ski Area, one on the beginner hill and another on the intermediate hill.

What do I need to know about Snow Tubing?

A tunnel in the snow

Snowtubing is a great way to introduce the sport of skiing or snowboarding to children as young as 5 years old (with an adult). It is also fun and easy for more experienced skiers and riders. Participants must be comfortable with blue terrain. Snow Tubing is available Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from January 4 – March 12; weather permitting; conditions permitting. Parents: we urge you not to send your little ones down the hill without you as there have been accidents in the past where kids have slid out of bounds and required searching…please don’t let this happen to your child.

How do I sign up for snow tubing?

Snow Tubing is available on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve tubing time, purchase tickets at the Ticket Window in the Main Lodge. Tickets are $25 per person for a two-hour session and include equipment rental.

What should I wear for snow tubing?

Clothing should be suitable for outside winter activities. Dress in layers so you can adjust as needed. Wear gloves, a hat and warm boots. Sunglasses and sunscreen are also recommended.

What else do I need to know?

A valid lift ticket or season pass is required to participate in snow tubing. Tubers must ride with their hands inside the tube at all times. Snow Tubing is not allowed on trails or in terrain parks. Pets are not allowed on the tubing hill.
