Take interstate 90 to exit 53. Follow the signs from the off ramp to Summit Central. The Tubing Area Entrance is located in the SE corner of the Summit Central Main Parking Lot. You will see a large sign off the street that reads "Summit Tubing Area". Proceed to the lower parking area and ticket booth.
Tubing session purchases may be cancelled and refunded up to 48 hours prior to your original session start time. All sales are final within 48 hours of your original scheduled session.
Space in each session is limited and availability can also be affected by the weather. We encourage guests to arrive 45 minutes to one hour prior to their tubing session. We do not guarantee availability since we do have such high levels of demand. Buying your tickets in advance online is the best way to ensure that you get your desired session.
We do not operate midweek except for holiday breaks and other midweek days that coincide with scheduled school closures. Hours are dependent upon weather conditions and may change at any time, but our general weekly operations are from Friday evening through Sunday.
The Tubing Center is open for regular operations, Friday - Sunday and Holidays during the core of the season. The Tubing Center often opens for the season in early to mid December and shuts down in April. Both opening and closing dates are conditions dependent as we rely on mother nature to provide the incredibly fun sliding surface; Snow!
It is mandatory for each participant over the age of 18 sign a liability form to receive a ticket. Children under the age of 18 will need a signature from a consenting adult. Download the liability form.
With ample snow our tubing hill is comprised of 12 lanes. The tubing hill has nearly 40ft of vertical drop covering about 550ft and is groomed to perfection; maximizing your thrill and excitement as you zoom down the hill. Don't fret...you have two options to reach the top of the hill again: choose to make the trek up the hill in our "walk up lane only", or you can utilize our surface tow which allows you to sit back and relax on your tube as you are pulled to the top of the hill.
Depending on volume, the Tubing Center may operate one or both ticket booth locations. We have one at the Tubing Lodge and one in the lower parking lot below the tubing hill.
The Summit Tubing area is a snow tubing operation. If we do not have snow, or if conditions are dangerous, we do not operate. Current conditions are updated on a daily basis.
Space in each session is limited and availability can also be affected by the weather. We encourage guests to leave a 30-45 minute window prior to the session time they desire for arrival. This will certainly help get the session you want; however, we can not guarantee availability since we do have such high levels of demand. Buying your tickets in advance online is the best way to ensure that you get your desired session.
Tubing tickets are sold for two-hour increments of time called sessions. These sessions help us provide a consistently safe hill by implementing crowd control and reducing congestion.
The Summit Tubing area has a small cafe; with a fairly extensive menu that offers everything from burger and fries to Caesar salad. Our dining hall is fairly small, but the overall atmosphere stays quaint even during busy times.
We have a very specific code of conduct and set of rules. Our most basic rules include:
Children 5 and under may ride with an Adult. We do prohibit doubles for others due to liability.
We do leave the final decision up the parents.
Age 13 and older is considered an Adult and ages 6-12 years is considered a youth. Ages 5 and under are $5 per session for admission.
Sorry, we love animals, but they do messy things to the snow and they pose a liability to our other guests. Please leave all animals at home when visiting us.
Personal sledding devices are not allowed for liability reasons. The cost of admission includes use of our professional grade recreational tubes, our machine groomed tubing hill, and our surface tows which bring you back up the hill. Because we do not allow outside sledding devices, your price of admission will not deviate.
