What Is Snowtubing?

Snow tubing is the latest snow sports craze and involves flying down our slope in a large inflatable ring with a hard bottom base. It’s essentially like sledging, but lots more fun! We race the snow tubes, put you in twos, fours ... altogether and send you through some bumpy bits to top it all off. Snow tubing takes place on the main slope here at Halifax Ski & Snowboard centre.

We have lots of options available for parties, which can include play in Charlie Fastrax multi story play centre for the smaller ones. We also cater for groups, work outing’s and schools, plus, you can also give snow tubing a try with our taster sessions which run at selected times.

Frequently Asked Questions

We say the minimum age is 5. At this age they are usually able to drag the snow tube back up the hill on their own, and hold onto theirs and others snowtubes.

The minimum number is 10 for parties & 12 for groups and we have up to 20 snow tubes. If you would like more than 20 in a group we can discuss the different options which are available.

The actual snow tubing lasts 45 minutes and then it will depend on the party option you choose.

A pair of gloves is a MUST. Suitable footwear, such as, walking boots, snow boots, trainers with good grip or any sturdy footwear ... avoid wellies and flat soled footwear. Ensure suitable clothing for the weather and arms and legs must be covered.

Snow tubing still goes ahead in the rain - it’s faster!! We would only stop the snow tubing in high winds and electrical storms.

We ask everyone to arrive 15 minutes early so that we can kit them out with helmets and check everyone has the appropriate clothing. We then take them out to the slope and give them a safety talk about the snow tubing and the do’s & don’ts. The instructors then set the snow tubes off from specially designated points. We generally only ever go half way up the slope and never from the top.
