If you’re not from an area that gets a lot of snow, chances are you’ve never been snow tubing. This easy recreational activity is perfect for non-skiers who want to enjoy fresh powder. It’s even catching on among thrill seekers looking for effortless excitement! Here in Jackson Hole, snow tubing provides simple, affordable fun for the whole family. Here are some of the best places to do it.
Located within Snow King Resort, King Tubes offers up fun for all ages. Let gravity take control as you fly down one of three groomed snow tubing lanes, then relax as the rope tow pulls you and your tube up the hill. The fast and exhilarating rides down these slopes will have you laughing all the way home! Kids must be at least 42″ tall to ride and there’s only one person per tube allowed. Check out the King Tubes website for hours and details.
About an hour drive from Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee offers snow tubing from late November through early April. Day passes are just $15 and include the use of a tube and access to the Papoose conveyor lift. This lift quickly whisks visitors to the top of the runs and is perfect for little ones. Reservations are recommended so be sure to call ahead!
As with other winter sports, tubing involves contact with snow, so a waterproof outer layer is best to avoid that soggy-jeans feeling. And don’t bother bringing a tube – Grand Targhee and King Tubes provide you with rentals!
