Tubing: Our tubing hill opens 1 hour after our slopes open and starts at the top of every hour. We do recommend reservations as some hours book up. We do not have an age or height limit, we do, however, require each child to ride independently in their own tube… meaning they cannot sit on anyone’s lap.
