Tubing

Tubing is happening at Ascutney Outdoors! Our dedicated tubing park is located just downslope from the Ascutney Outdoors Center. Our 500-foot tubing lift transports young and the young-at-heart uphill, and a slide down a groomed slope for hours of enjoyment. Use of the tubing run requires a lift ticket and a tube which we provide at the Tubing Hut. For safety reasons, no other tubes or sliding equipment may be used.

SNOW TUBING: Special COVID-19 Considerations

  • You may download a copy of our COVID Rules here.
  • Tubing tickets will be sold only at the walk-up window at the Tubing Hut.
  • All tubers (or their parents) will be required to provide AO with contract tracing information (name, email, phone) and attest to Vermont’s travel and quarantine policies.  This will be done when you purchase tickets.  We encourage daily users to print out and complete the Contact Form before arriving at the ticket line.
  • Users must wear face coverings in lift lines, waiting areas, and when loading.
  • “Pushing” only by others – not AO volunteers.
  • “Chain Group” descent – only if in same family.
  • Handles will be disinfected each day.

Hours of Operation

Our operations are dependent on volunteers and natural snow conditions and may change at any time.  Please check ahead on the News section on our Home Page or Facebook for the most up-to-date information on operations.

When conditions allow, snow tubing will be open:

  • Saturday and Sunday afternoon from noon until 4 PM.

Ticket packets cost $10 – tube included – and are good for 6 rides up the lift.  Tickets are sold only at the Tubing Center, which is adjacent to the tubing lift and large parking lot.
