Snow Tubing

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON !

Polar Blast at Brandywine is bmbw.com

New this year to Alpine Valley is the Polar Blast Tubing Park! Along with the other enhancements at Alpine Valley, we have moved the tubing hill to a new location. The new Polar Blast Tube Park now sits where the Arrowhead trail used to be. The terrain has been excavated and reshaped to accommodate the new park and enhance your tubing experience. The new course is longer than the length of a football field and wide enough for roughly 8-10 large tubing lanes (depending upon weather conditions). Also new this year are two new handle tows to more efficiently take riders to the top of the hill so you can spend more time tubing.

Prices 

The prices for the snow tubing sessions include use of special snow tubes, access to the tubing lanes and to the handle tows, which makes getting back up to the top of the hill with your tube quick and easy so you can maximize the fun!
 
Polar Blast Tubing also offers a season pass for only $69 for fun all season long. Pass holders enjoy unlimited access to the tube hill at both Alpine Valley and Brandywine throughout the 2013/2014 season. You are able to upgrade any single day tubing pass to a season pass for the price difference.

Snow Tubing FAQ's:

1. What not to wear

     Helmets and ski boots are not allowed while tubing.

 

2. How old do you have to be to enjoy a ride on a snow tube?

Anyone can snow tube. There is no minimum or maximum age—we have had tubers of all ages ranging from 2 – 80 years old. Our rule is that each person has to be able to sit and ride in their own tube by themselves.

 

3. Do I have to walk back up to the top of the hill?

No. Our two conveyor lifts will give you a ride back up to the top. Think of them as moving sidewalks that magically carry you up the hill.  Simply step onto the conveyor at the bottom of the hill and then step off onto the snow once your effortless ride to the top is complete.

 

4. Can two people share a snow tube?

No, each patron must ride in their own tube alone. However, we do allow ‘linking’, which is when multiple tubers are linked together and able to ride down together in one big group.

 

5. When is the best time to go snow tubing?

It depends on the type of experience you are looking for.

There are many elements that can affect your tubing experience. For example, the amount of traffic, recent snowfall, temperatures, snow making and grooming, and other variables, can impact the speed and number of runs you can fit in. For example, if you are looking for speed, the evenings are typically slightly faster after the sun sets and the temperature drops. The chutes become a little slicker resulting in more speed. Again however, there are multiple factors that can play into this.

If you are looking for a more relaxed day of tubing, we recommend coming soon after we open. After long nights of snow making and less traffic in the mornings, the chutes are typically slightly slower. Of course, there is no way for us to tell when the snow tubing crowd is going to arrive, so we cannot guarantee you a quiet time of the day. However, typically only very large crowds have an effect on the tubing terrain.

 

6. What do we wear snow tubing?

Regardless if you are tubing all night long or watching from the lodge, its important to dress warm.

  • The best way to dress for winter is to wear layers: The exterior protection layer of a shell and pants serves as your guard against the elements and should be waterproof.  
  • Cover your head--with a hat, hood or both--as this is where most of your body heat escapes. Neck coverings such as scarves, bandanas, will also help keep you warm.
  • Keep your hands warm by wearing gloves (preferably waterproof) that fit well.  
  • Other essentials are warm socks and sunscreen. Sunscreen is very important to wear on sunny days to prevent sunburn. Not only does the sun shine just as bright in the winter, but it also reflects off of the snow, causing some bad sunburn and goggle tan lines.
