The tubing area is a small 2-5 minute walk to the tubing area on a gravel path from the main lodge.

We do not allow vehicles to drive to the tubing area.  

We allow one person per tube. We do allow several tubes to "link" together so a parent can hold on to their child's tube or friends can experience the ride together. (The parent should be in the lead tube and the child behind.) The maximum amount of tubes that can link together is 2. With that said, it is at the discretion of the Tubing Manager on duty. Faster tubing speeds may require us to limit the amount of tubes that can link together.

Snow Creek does not define the age requirement. We expect people to use common sense and good judgment. With that said, under 2 is not recommended.

Remember that only one person is allowed per tube. If you are bringing younger children, the adult should hold on to the child's tube. This is important also to help the child get up at the bottom, out of the tube and walk safely in the right direction to go to the tube lift again.

Minimum height for all riders is 42 inches (3 feet 6 inches) tall
Our Snow Tubes have a hard plastic bottom with handles on the sides. Small children are able to sit inside the tube if they are not big enough to lay on top of the tube. It is easy for bigger kids and adults to hang on to another person's tubes as they go down together.
We do not allow personal sleds or tubes to be used on the tubing runs. The tube rental is included in the cost.

Yes, tubing conditions are affected by the weather. Warmer weather (45 degrees+) brings slower tubing speeds while colder weather (32 degrees and colder) creates faster tubing speeds. The colder it is, the faster the tubes will go.
All types of conditions can be fun. If you prefer faster speeds, early morning or after the sun goes down are usually your best chance to experience faster speeds. Natural snow is fun to play in, but creates slow tubing conditions.
Don't forget you can view tubing conditions from the Web Cams on our website.

*Tubing tickets are non-refundable due to conditions.

We have 2 conveyors that take guests and their tubes back to the top. We ask that guests stand while riding to the top holding their tube. We do not allow guests to sit, run, or walk on the conveyor. Children are not allowed to sit in tubes and ride to the top.
We do not offer Tubing passes.
Dress according to the weather and as if you were going sledding. We do suggest dressing in layers and waterproof clothing is recommended.
