Year-round Tubing in Grand County
The YMCA of the Rockies at Snow Mountain Ranch hosts year-round tubing. When the snow falls grab a tube from the Winter Pavilion and hit the hill. Do note that no rope tow or moving platform is available to get you to the top. This is an old-fashioned sledding-style hill, so hiking is required for winter tubing here.
With the help of a slick modern surface, Snow Mountain Ranch developed a tubing hill suitable for summer, fall, and spring off-season. Summer tubing requires zero snow, thanks to the Snowflex® tubing slope from Briton Engineering Developments Ltd. It’s one of only a few in the country.
There are also other winter activities worth doing, like dog sledding, Nordic skiing, sledding, Alpine skiing and snowboarding, tubing, dog sledding, and snowmobiling.
Summer activities on the other hand include horseback riding, hiking, biking, canoeing, zip lining, fishing, boating, and rafting. Want some more? They also offer swimming, rock climbing, basketball, archery, and crafts. There is certainly so much to do at the YMCA of the Rockies – Snow Mountain Ranch.
