Snow Trails believes in the best experiences possible. With high demand and limited capacity we allocate a limited number of spaces for Passholders as well as those who buy daily Area Lift Tickets. Traffic and maximum capacity can be limited by weather, days of the week, holidays, conditions and many other factors.
There is no waitlist. Tickets can become available when guests cancel or management may on occasion release more tickets at weather and traffic patterns develop.
There are no refunds when we are open and all change requests must be made 24+ hours advance. Snow Trails seldom closes due to poor weather. We ski in rain, warm weather, cold weather…you name it. Make sure you check our Web Cams and Daily Snow Report for conditions. If we close for any reason we make attempts to reach out to those with reservations via email and text with information on reschedules and credit.
We suggest you buy the correct product ASAP and then send us an email with the Transaction Locator (under the bar code on our e-receipt) of the incorrect products and we’ll refund them. If products are sold out reach out to us and we'll see what options we have.
The eMail should have links to your waiver but if not please check your e-receipt from your purchase on how to sign a waiver or you can sign one when you arrive.
As seen on the website, visit: https://www.snowtrails.com/footer/hours-of-operation also always check our daily Snow Report found at the top of the website.
No, it’s only valid only for the products listed on the voucher.
We offer no discount for Peak Days & Times (Holidays and Weekends) but there are some options through the week. Let us now what you need.
Just email them your e-receipt and they can check in with your reservation via the Transaction Locator. Please note they be required to sign waivers on site. We cannot split your purchase up.
We do NOT allow snow bikes but do permit Skates and vacations as long as they have metal edges.
We do not. The terrain around Snow Trails is not ideal for that and we cannot make snow off mountain.
See this link: https://www.snowtrails.com/footer/other-discounts
Nope. As you have have seen or heard all daily Lift Tickets are by reservations and must be purchased online. To offer the best experiences possible we allocate so many tickets based on many variables and do sell out most Peak Days. Even for slower weekdays we require it to keep the policy consistent.
Regardless if you have a Season Pass or a Daily Lift Ticket you can obtain a Lift Ticket for those 5 years and younger at the ticket window or Rental Center when you arrive.
Equipment rentals come with boots and a ski (or board) and poles if skiing. We do not include helmets but they can be rented on site. We do not offer rental of clothing or goggles.
The minimum age for tubing participation is at the discretion of the parent or guardian. Only one person per tube but you can hold to their tube as you go down the hill. They must be old enough to stand up on the conveyor carpet that takes them back up the hill. We have no requirements or recommendations for height, weight or age. It's at the guest discretion. There are no discounts for children.
It can happen...but it's very rare.
No. Tickets are for two hours, but an "extra hour" can be purchased at a discounted rate afterwards if tubes are available.
No. They must be purchased separately.
No. There are several picnic tables and a patio you can watch from at the bottom of the slopes.
Yes. During Peak Days and when mother nature has everyone thinking snow! Our popular Glow Tubing sessions often sell-out quickly too. Buy online as soon as tickets go on-sale.
Great question! School cancelations due to snow usually come at the last minute and since we are not open through the week when school is in session we don't have staff available to work just for a few days when schools close due to weather nor get them on site at the last minute.
Yes and no. Seating inside the Tubing Lodge and outside is very limited. We have a Snowtubing Lodge with a snack bar and shared seating as well as a well lit patio, bench seats, picnic tables and a fire pit.
We have a Snowtubing Lodge directly at the Snowtubing Area that has snack bar with warm beverages, snacks candies and basic foods like hot dogs and pretzels. Just a short walk away in the Main Lodge is Joe's Place a full service cafeteria as well as the Last Run & Deli.
None. We have no requirements or recommendations for height, weight or age. It's at the guest discretion. Guests are required to be able to get in and out of the tube under their own power.
Most likely because we can make our own when conditions are favorable and mother nature is not helping. Please visit our SNOW REPORT at the top of the website for current status of our conditions and facilities. Our Season can run from mid December to mid March.
Yes but it must be consumed either at your vehicle or the Valley Lodge located away from the Tubing Area. The Snowtubing Lodge located at the base of the Snowtubing area is only available for dining with those who have purchased food at the Snack Bar.
We do not offer a designated area for private or reserved space or offer any packages at our Snowtubing facility for such a need, but that's not to say we don't have parties, clubs, businesses and groups join us regularly for their special day. We ask that any features of a party such as cakes, games and opening gifts occur offsite.
We can open anywhere from the day after Thanksgiving to around the New Year depending on Mother Nature! We ask that you join our Newsletter and check our Snow Report for the latest information when conditions are favorable. Once we can start making snow it's often only days before we are ready to open!
Yes, online only. Tickets cannot be purchased ahead of time at the ticket window. Sessions Sell-Out Fast. Please Plan Ahead.
Snowtubing will continue during poor weather conditions including rain, snow, very cold and unseasonably warm temperatures. Please visit SnowTrails.com/Snow prior to your arrival to confirm we are open. Temporary Closing: In the event of a delay due to lightning, credit will be issued for sessions impacted by the temporary closing. We cannot move sessions back as this will impact those with later bookings. Cancellations: If Snow Trails has to close the facility for any reason refunds will be issued.

Rescheduling may be an option for those that contact us at least 48 hours prior to their date and arrival time. Credit in the form of a Gift/Value Card may be given in some cases, but there will be no refunds unless Snow Trails closes.

Glow Tubing is nightly Thursday thru Sunday and Peak Day throughout the entire season. Glow Tubing starts at twilight every night that our Snow Tubing facility is open. Our season often runs from mid December through mid March, weather dependent.
Glow Tubing is Snow Tubing... it's just in the dark! All tickets purchased after dusk are for Glow Tubing. We have Glow Tubing each and every night that our Snow Tubing Facility is open... for the entire winter season!
A Glow Tubing Ticket give you access to our Snow Tubing facility which consists of a special tube designed for use on snow as well as use of a conveyor lift for a ride to the top if the hill. Special lights features make every Glow Tubing adventure a night to remember. Amenities of the Snow Tubing facility include a lodge, snack bar, fire pit, bathrooms, picnic tables and well as access to our Main Lodge which includes additional dinning, two bar and two restaurants.
We do not. You can find area accommodations listed here.
Most likely yes! We have guests every week with different unique needs and seldom run into issues. If the guest can get from a vehicle to the edge of the snow we can get them into a tube. Someone will need to pull the guest to the conveyor carpet and they can ride up the carpet to transport to the top. Although we do not permit guests to ride in the tube up the hill we do permit it for our guests with unique needs, it's totally safe. Upon arrival, please inform staff of any issue that might restrict your party of enjoying the tubing experience, they will do their best to provide assistance and accommodate the situation to ensure everyone a safe and exciting time.
Tickets often go on sale in November with availability for all available dates from late December to late February. Additional dates and quantities may become available early and late season, as well as based on weather and cancellations. We will not announce a specific date or time of release.
Yes and no. When we are open to the public there is no special pricing or group considerations. Tickets must be purchased online and at full price and the system permits 15 ticket to be purchased at one time. We do offer Weekday Private Park Rentals that can accommodate large groups and are very cost effective when group sizes are in excess of 50+ people.
When dates through late February are only showing it means we have not determined if weather and snow conditions will allow dates later in the season. Tubing often goes into early to mid March but we will not release those dates until confidence is high we can deliver on the reservations.
