Loppet Trails & Recreation

Snow Tubing & Sledding

The easiest way to enjoy the hills

The tubing hill at Wirth Park, just behind The Trailhead, is designed for fun for all ages. During select days, there is an operating tow rope which brings tubers back up to the top of the hill. On other days, tubers can walk up the stairs on the side of the hill to get back to the top. You bring the warm clothes, we provide the rest.

Parking is available outside The Trailhead building with more parking available at the Wirth Chalet.

Tubing Groups
