Went here last summer, they added a plasticy-rubber type of track to part of the sledding hill so it simulates tubing without the cold or snow. Not abrasive if you accidentally fall on it. I believe it was $2 per ride or ~$10 for unlimited...More

Tubed here one afternoon. $15 per is a bit steep. Tube hill is a fun fast hill. Too crowded at first, 10 deep to get a tube run. Thinned out as day went to night.

This is a smaller ski option but the slopes are pretty nice and the lodge is accommodating. We had a 12 and 13 year old with us and we spent the day tubing. Super frigid in January but there’s a nice outdoor fire pit and...More
