Skiers and Snowboarders Don’t Get to Have All the Fun
You don’t need epic carving skills or fancy equipment to make the most of the winter sports season. Many of NEPA’s ski resorts have snow tubing lanes where the whole family can race down the slopes. All you have to do is plop down in the tube, push off and enjoy the wind in your face and the thrill of the adrenaline rush. It’s all the fun of sledding, but with higher hills, longer runs and helpful lifts (no trudging back uphill!).
When it comes to tubing, NEPA goes all out. Our very own Pocono Mountains are home to two of the largest snow tubing parks in the country at Blue Mountain Resort and Camelback Resort. Some resorts even offer nighttime tubing, which is like a party on the mountain complete with lights and music.
Put on your boots and bundle up for the best snow day ever at these local snow tubing destinations. Just remember, some resorts are requiring reservations or selling online-only tickets. Make sure to check their policies before you head out.
Places to Go Snow Tubing:
Blue Mountain Resort
The thrills are endless at Blue Mountain Resort, home of the longest snow tubing lanes in Pennsylvania. They boast 46 lanes, each stretching over 1,000 feet down the mountain. They even have family-friendly double tubes for twice the fun.
With over 40 lanes, this award-winning ski resort offers epic snow tubing. Single and double tubes are available. Visit after dark for Galactic Snow Tubing, a special nighttime session with out-of-this-world lights and music.
Jack Frost / Big Boulder Ski Resort
Head out to Jack Frost Ski Resort in White Haven or its sister resort, Big Boulder just down the road in Lake Harmony for an awesome snow tubing experience. It also helps that both resorts are equipped with conveyor carpets and cable tows to get you back up the hill.
Montage Mountain Resorts
Take a wild ride down Montage Mountain’s snow tubing lanes. Their tubing park is lighted so that the fun continues, even after the sun goes down.
Shawnee Mountain Ski Area
