What is Snow Tubing?
Snow tubing is an outdoor winter activity where a person sits on an inflated inner tube and slides down a snow-covered hill.
What to Wear Snow Tubing?
In order to fully enjoy your snow tubing experience, you will need to dress appropriately. Fortunately, snow tubing doesn’t require specific clothing like many other winter activities so use common sense and think layering! Since weather conditions/temperatures can change depending on the location, having the ability to adjust clothing is key.
Your base layer should be lightweight and have the ability to wick moisture away from the skin. The next layer should be heavier such as fleece clothing covered by a waterproof jacket. Waterproof ski/snow pants are recommended since wearing 100% cotton clothing (sweatpants, jeans, etc.) will absorb moisture from snow and sweat. In addition, a warm hat, waterproof gloves, sunglasses and hiking boots or waterproof shoes are needed. Ski boots are normally prohibited for safety reasons.
What are the Hours?
The Maine Family Snow Tube Park is open Weekends/Vacation Days 10am-4pm
Is Snow Tubing Dangerous?
Snow tubing is widely considered to be a fun activity that the entire family can enjoy. However, you are tubing at your own risk. It is typical for snow tubing locations to require participants to sign a waiver/release form. Also, children may not be able to participate if they do not meet certain height criteria.
How long are the lanes? about 600 ft -- 2 football field lengths
Is there a weight limit per person?
The handle tow lift can toe any weight, however, please consider the size of the opening of the tube when making decisions. To be sure the person will be seated properly and safely.
Is there room for people to sit and watch the tubing guests?
For safety reasons, we do not have seating available. Spectators are welcome to stand to watch their guests.
