There are 3 amazing tubing hills in Summit County! If you’ve never gone, you’ve got to try it. Take a ride up the magic carpet lift with your tube and then zip down one of the lanes while you twist, turn, jump and giggle.
~Keystone Resort offers tubing at Adventure Point at the top of Dercum Mountain. Ride the gondola to the top and walk on over to Adventure Point. On your way, stop at Kidtopia Snowfort and let your inner child out. Keystone’s Tubing Hill opens 11/27/13 for the season.
~At Copper Mountain, you can access tubing from the base of East Village: “You’ve tried the rest, now try the best! Since 1997 Copper Mountain’s Tubing Hill has been thrilling Summit County residents and visitors as the county’s original Tubing venue. After a day on the slopes, kick off those ski boots and gather the whole family for a great time! Head to the East Village, sign your waivers, hand-pick the perfect tube, and head to The Stinger Surface Lift. It’s all downhill from there!” They also have “Critterland”, a place where the smaller adventurers can have fun too! Copper’s tubing hill opens 11/29/13 for the season.
~The Town of Frisco opened their tubing hill just a few years ago and it’s already a huge hit! Located at the Frisco Adventure Park right of highway 9, the tubing hill features lengthy 1200-foot tubing lanes with lift service up the hill for tubing day or night under the lights. After you’re done tubing, head to the Day Lodge and enjoy some Hot Chocolate, coffee and snacks while you laugh about the tubing fun you just experienced! Tubing at the Adventure Park in Frisco opens Thanksgiving Day, 11/28/13.
If traditional sledding is more your thing, there are lots of options up here in the mountains. Carter Park in Breckenridge has a long, steep hill to go tearing down on your red flyer sled! There is a hill just off the Frisco Adventure Park leading to the disc golf course and on your way to Keystone, from Dillon, there’s a great hill to your right just before Summerwood (across from the cemetary).
Either way, there are lots of great ways on the hill without having to strap on skis or a snowboard. Enjoy
