Get Your Thrills on the Hill


Winter fun under the summer sun! Our summer tubing hill is the first of its kind in Colorado, and only the third in the United States. Ride our winter snow tubes down a 300-foot hill covered with a synthetic snow surface. After you make it down the hill, let the magic carpet take you back to the top.

In a list of the “Top 10 Things to do at Snow Mountain Ranch according to 10 year olds,” the girls ranked the summer tubing hill as the second best thing to do, after zip lining. They said that it’s “just like real tubing but better because it wasn’t cold outside. Make sure to ask them to spin you!” We definitely agree.

The summer tubing hill opens Memorial Day weekend and is open daily (weather permitting). Overnight guests receive a free summer tubing hill session with their stay, and can register in advance by clicking here. Each additional reservation made in advance will cost $15 per person. But, if you reserve your free session and decide you want another, we recommend waiting until you’re here, and signing up for a second free (space permitting) session at the Programs desk the day of! Day visitors can purchase a summer tubing hill session for $15 per person, in addition to their day passes.
