Snow Tubing FAQ's:
What not to wear
Helmets and ski boots are not allowed while tubing.
How old do you have to be to enjoy a ride on a snow tube at Polar Blast?
Anyone can snow tube. There is no minimum or maximum age--we've seen smiles on snow tubers from age 2 to age 80! As long as a person is able to ride in his or her own tube down the snow tubing hill, they can snow tube at Polar Blast.
Do I have to walk back up to the top of the hill?
No. Our two conveyor lifts at Polar Blast will give you a ride back up to the top. Think of them as moving sidewalks that go uphill... you simply step onto the conveyor at the bottom, and then step off onto the snow once your effortless ride to the top is complete!
Can two people share a snow tube?
Every snow tuber must ride on his or her own tube. However... Tubers are allowed to go down the chutes together in a group; the maximum number of tubers allowed to go down a paritcular chute at once depends on the current conditions.
When is the best time to go snow tubing?
That depends on what you're looking for...
If you want some speed: Evenings (like our EXTREME Tubing nights) are typically a little faster once the sun goes down and the temperatures drop. However, conditions and speed varies due to time of day, temperature and other weather factors, traffic on the chutes, snowmaking and grooming, and other factors.
If you want to snow tube at a quieter time of the day: Sunday mornings often have the least amount of snow tubers. Of course, there is no way for us to tell when the snow tubing crowd is going to arrive, so we can't guarantee you a quiet time of the day... but the good news is that when it comes to snow tubing, the old saying, "The more, the merrier!" definitely applies!
What do we wear snow tubing?
Whether watching or sliding, you'll be in the outdoors so remember to dress warmly.
- 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.
- Keep your hands warm by wearing gloves (preferably waterproof) that fit well.
- Other essentials are warm socks and sunscreen. (Sunscreen isn't just for summer, you know.) Being prepared to be outside helps ensure that you will have the best time you can while you're out playing in the snow!
