The Rocky Mountains stand tall and majestic, guarding the State of Colorado. There are more mountain peaks here that exceed 14,000 feet than anywhere else in the world. That means you’ve got access to world-class snow tubing in virtually every section of the state. Here is the best of what snow tubing in Colorado has to offer.
- Copper Mountain
This resort has created a well-designed fun zone for the whole family to enjoy. There are four designated tubing lanes that have been built with a magic carpet for complete enjoyment. There’s also a mini-tubing area for toddlers and preschoolers called “Critterland” for those who are under 36 inches tall. You can also drop-in at Woodward at Copper for artificial snow jumps for added fun.
- The Meadows
Snow tubing has been a recent upgrade at this Snowmass resort at Elk Camp. Multiple lanes are carved into the snow with lights installed so there is illuminated night tubing available. Come out on a Friday night and you’ll get to celebrate with Ullr, the Norse god of snow. Grab some dinner, dance around the fire, and be prepared to have a great time.
- Firecracker Hill
Telluride might be a little out of the way for some, but its beauty is classic Colorado. Jagged peaks, rustic restaurants, Victorian architecture, and a great sledding hill will be waiting there to greet you. It’s not really a resort, but there are organized activities at Town Park, including ice skating and cross-country skiing. Make sure you take the bus into town to enjoy handmade truffles, hot chocolate, and other treats that will warm you up.
- Frisco Adventure Park
This resort has one of the longest tubing runs in the state, measuring out to an incredible 1,200 feet. Lifts are installed to make the hill more accessible and lighting is available for night tubing as well. Snowboarding and ski lessons are sprinkled into the off-session times so you can pick up another winter sport skill if you wish. There’s also the advantage of this resort’s central location: it’s within a couple of hours of virtually every major ski resort in the state.
- Snow Mountain Ranch
Located in Winter Park, this hill offers tow rope access for a lift and incredible views to enjoy as you speed down the hill. It’s also one of the few resorts where you can go do some winter horseback riding in the Rocky Mountains as well. Tube rentals are available if you don’t own one of the best snow tubes available right now or you can go ice skating if you prefer. At night, rent a horse-drawn sleigh with some hot chocolate for an amazing experience.
Snow tubing in Colorado is some of the best that the world has to offer. You will find majestic mountains, well-groomed tube runs, and affordable tickets are just waiting to be enjoyed. Pack your bags, grab your inflatables, and get outside to enjoy snow tubing at what feels like the very top of the world.
