Snow Tubing at NH Ski Areas
During recent years snow tubing has continued to grow in popularity at Ski NH resorts as a simple, fun way to slide on snow. Snow tubing is as easy as sitting down and letting gravity do the work. Even if you've never seen snow before, your first tube ride can be a fun one. Snow tubing facilities vary from ski area to ski area, with some offering straight, high speed runs, while others offer twisty banked runs. Many of these areas also have a dedicated lift serving the tubing area to quickly get you back up the hill for another run.
Tubing is available daily from 10am - 6pm. Night tubing is available from 6pm - 8pm, Fridays/Saturdays, December 22, 2013-March 8, 2014. Special vacation week night tubing available February 16-22, 2014 from 6pm - 8pm. Tubes are rented on an hourly basis.
