Wander, how is snow tubing a family-friendly activity? You can take a ride with your tribe in a family-size snow tube. Plus, gentle "magic carpet" lifts make reaching the mountaintop incredibly easy, and you can slide down again and again.

Things You Need For Snow Tubing

  • Wear plenty of layers when heading for snow tubing; it will insulate against cold and likely get some relief if you start to heat up on your way down.

  • Be sure to take a good base layer like a thermal Shirt, and for mid-layer, wear warm fleece.
  • After your thief or a fourth trip down, chances are you will feel soaked. To prevent this, wear dry clothes made of polypropylene or polyester. These fabrics are best at pulling moisture away from the body. 
  • Take sunglasses or google with you to protect you from the wind and winter glare.

 What to Bring

  • Snow tubing is superbly safe, but accidents can and still do happen. So consider wearing a helmet just in case to avoid any trouble. With that said, bring bandages, hand sanitizer, antiseptic, and pain reliever. It's better to be prepared than not prepared at all. Right? 
  • Always bring extra cloth with you for snow tubing. So you don't have to go back to the room for change.
  • Bring some sunscreen and chapstick to protect your face and ears from the harsh reflection of the sun off the gleaming snow.
