Top 5 Places to Go Snow Tubing in Vermont

Headed to Vermont this winter with the family and want to know the best places to go snow tubing? I know of a few places that I can recommend.

Here they are:

1. Sharp Park

Sharp Park is located in Milton and its Cobble Hill is a great place to go snow tubing. The hill has varying degrees of slope, which makes it perfect for families. The younger kids can stick to the lower, milder sections of the hill, while the older kids can entertain themselves in the steeper areas. Another nice thing about the place is its friendly on your wallet. There is no admission charge and snow tube rentals are a modest $12 for two hours. You may also opt to bring you own tubes. Helmets are required for the little ones and a limited number are available on-site, free of charge. It opens on the weekends at 10 a.m.

2. Magic Mountain

Magic Mountain is a ski area located in Londonderry. It features the Alakazaam Tube Park as well. In order to access the snow tubing area, riders must be 44 inches tall or more and be able to control a tube on their own. In some instances, parents are allowed to share a snow tube with their child. Rates range from $20 to $25 per person, and the cheapest time to go is after 4 p.m. It opens on Fridays at 4 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m.

3. Okemo Mountain Resort

The Okemo Mountain Resort is located in Ludlow and features a well-maintained, moderate-sized snow tubing area. The kids will need to be 42 inches tall or more and a signed liability waiver is required. The only real downfall is that it will cost you $10 per person, per hour to use the facility. At prices like that, the day can get quite expensive in a hurry.

4. Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center

The Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center is located in Grafton and features a single, 600-foot tubing run and a charming lodge on-site. Be prepared to fork over $15 for a two-hour session. It opens daily at 9 a.m., weather permitting.

5. Killington Tubing Park

The Killington Tubing Park is located in Killington and features a large tubing area that opens at 5 p.m. on Fridays and at 11 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Participants must be 42 inches tall or more, and a two-hour session will run you $15 to $17 per person.

My family enjoys winter sports and has traveled extensively.
