Looking for something different? Try tubing! Located on the Sugar Mountain Golf Course; the 700 ft long tubing lanes are serviced by a Magic Carpet lift. Snowmaking, lights for night tubing and regularly groomed lanes complete the facility. Sessions are just under two hours long and run from 10:00am until 10pm.

Individual tickets must be purchased at the tubing run, not the normal selling windows at the lodge.

Please read how to properly attach your lift ticket/slope pass.

The Tubing Park is closed.
