Snow Tubing in the GTA
Tubing is a wintertime activity that is similar to sledding, though a snow tube is a bit more high tech than a traditional sled! Snow tubes can spin in both directions making the slide more thrilling, as opposed to going downhill in a straight line. The rider also slides down a special snow tubing slope. Snow tubing is fast becoming a fun and super-trendy leisure activity for young and old. It's a good alternative for people who don't ski or snow board. Sliding down a hill is winter excitement at its best!
Snow tubing rides are usually a nominal charge for one slide or you can purchase hour slots for unlimited rides. An adult must usually accompany children, and venues will enforce age and height restrictions. However, many parks are now introducing gentler slopes, which are family-friendly and allow younger and shorter children to ride. You should check at individual locations for specific policies.
Check out the following parks that offer snow tubing in the GTA. Information is subject to change and snow tubing is weather dependent, so call the park ahead of time before heading out!
