Top 3 Places to Go Snow Tubing in Winter Park
1. Winter Park Resort
The Coca-Cola Tube Park at Winter Park Resort is the newest snow tube park in Colorado! Here you’ll find four tubing lanes, exciting banked curves, and a covered conveyor lift to take you back to the top. After a few runs, warm up in the comfortable Hill House Lodge and enjoy hot chocolate, fresh-baked cookies, snacks, and other bar offerings. The park is open from November to April.
Note: Tubing times often sell out, so try to reserve your tickets in advance. Reservations can be made online or by phone at (800) 729-7907. You can also purchase tickets in person at the tubing hill sales desk based on availability.
2. Fraser Tubing Hill
Just minutes from Winter Park is the Historic Tubing Hill in Fraser, Colorado. This park has been family-owned and operated since 1971 and takes pride in passing on their passion to our community. Enjoy gliding down the hill on a tube, then relax as the lift brings you back up the hill. (You can take in the fresh, mountain air and scenery along the way.) Food and drinks are available during your visit and the park is open every day in the winter – no reservations required.
3. Colorado Adventure Park
Did you know that Colorado Adventure Park is Grand County’s fastest and largest locally-owned tubing hill? This facility offers a variety of family-friendly activities, including tubing, double tubing, and snow scoots. Plus, they make their own snow, so the fun is endless.
Single riders can grab a tube and take an easy ride up the Magic Carpet lift. At the top, choose from slow and easy terrain to fast and wild runs. Or, opt for the double tube and enjoy the same great ride with the speed of two people. It’s perfect for kids who don’t want to ride alone.
