Snow tubing
Snow tubing is a really fun winter activity, not only for kids but truly for the whole family. There are a few places in Vermont where you can enjoy sliding down in those inflatable tubes. Following popular demand, we have decided to give you a complete listing of the spots where you can enjoy snow tubing in Vermont. We are listing hours of operation, but you may want to check the websites, particulary early in the season to make sure they are open, or check special hours of operation during holiday periods. Note also that some websites are listing places which actually don’t offer snow tubing, such as Killington, Stratton, Stowe and the White House Inn. In some cases, they used too… but don’t anymore. And now… dress warm, get out… and enjoy snow tubing!

    Please add Sharp Park to your list of snow tubing locations in Vermont. Check out our web site at http://www.sharppark.com. Also check out the recent video at http://www.7dvt.com. We are open from 10am to dusk every weekend, weather permiting. All sliding at Sharp Park is free and at your own risk on your own equipment. We rent snow tubes for $10 for two hours. We just opened our brand new warm barn with bathroom facilities in December. Guests are welcome to come in and get warm, have a hot chocolate, hot or cold drink or a snack. Hope to see you soon at Sharp Park.

    Also, another tubing place in Essex Jct, VT – Northern Lights Recreation and Ice…www.northernlightsvt.com. They have many activities for kids and adults and you don’t have to be staying at a resort to take part. The only thing is reservations are required.
