Snow Tubing

Great fun for the whole family…

The tubing hill at Wirth Park, just behind The Trailhead, 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.

Returning this year is a Kiddie Hill for young riders accompanied by an adult to enjoy!

Parking is available outside The Trailhead building with more parking available at the Wirth Chalet and East on Plymouth Ave.
