Snow Tubing & Sledding

Parent Category

Snow Tubing & Sledding in ColoradoColorado is a top vacation destination in the winter months, and one of the main reasons is the fantastic snowfall in the Rocky Mountains.  Enthusiasts of winter activities flock to Colorado to revel in the soft powder while skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, and dog sledding. With a lengthy winter season, snow sports can be enjoyed in Colorado from October through May and sometimes June or July, so you'll want to take advantage of the full range of activities available during your winter vacation. 


One of the best ways to enjoy a Colorado winter is snow tubing, where participants slide down a snow-covered hill in an inflatable tube.  Tubing can be an informal activity involving nothing more than a tube and a snowy hillside, but in many of Colorado's resort towns, you can take advantage of maintained tubing hills with groomed tracks of snow and a surface lift to ride back up to the top.  

Colorado snow tubing is the perfect activity for families of all sizes and ability levels.  You do not need any previous experience to go snow tubing in Colorado, and while some hills have height or weight restrictions, even younger children can frequently meet the minimum requirements.  Tubing at a tubing hill also involves additional excitement as the groomed trails mean faster speeds and the opportunity to try out various tricks like spinning the tube or linking to another tube as you fly down the slope.

Snow tubing isn't the only way to take on the snow-covered hills.  Another great winter option is snow sledding in Colorado.  Many people grew up sledding as children and want to enjoy the experience with their own little ones.  Others enjoy reliving the carefree days of their youth.  Sledding is a great way to take on fresh Colorado snowfall.  Give your legs a rest from skiing and snowboarding for an afternoon of sledding.

No matter how you choose to spend your winter, you won't want to miss out on Colorado sledding and snow tubing!
