Loppet Foundation

Snow Tubing


Our Snow Tubing operations will not be available until the Trailhead facility is open. Normal operation will resume once the Trailhead facility has opened. Sledding is available on the Wirth free sledding hill.

Great fun for the whole family. The new tubing hill at Wirth Park features a riding hill designed especially for family fun, with a tow rope to bring tubers back up to the top of the hill. You bring the warm clothes, we provide the rest.

Your tubing adventure will start at The Trailhead until the new Trailhead building opens. Parking is available at the Wirth Chalet and at the site of the new Trailhead building. Learn more about The Trailhead project.

Sledding is not allowed on the tubing hill at Wirth Winter Recreation Area. No snowboards, skis, sleds, toboggans, or tubes other than the tubes supplied by The Loppet Foundation are allowed on the hill. Riders must be at least five years of age or 44” tall. Riders under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
