Snow Tubing in Heavenly
For those wishing to tube, the requirement is that you must be more than 42 inches tall, and you must be able to tube by yourself. Also, you should dress like you are going to go skiing or riding — snow pants, waterproof winter coat, warm ski socks and waterproof winter boots. Tubing in jeans is fine, too; however, mid-mountain is colder than base elevation at the gondola. Heavenly provides the use of an inflated snow tube.
When it’s your time to tube, you’ll be instructed to pick out a tube, and getting on line to board the covered tubing lift — technically, not a tow but a magic carpet — that will transport you and your tube to the top of the tubing hill, which has a 65 foot vertical drop and four tubing lanes that are 500 feet long. On the day I went a few weeks ago, it took about 10 minutes for me to get from the bottom of the tubing hill to the top and wait my turn; riding down the tubing hill is very fast — with speed bumps toward the end to slow you down — and probably took about 10 seconds.
The Tubing Ticket Price is $23.50 for an hour of tubing (The Regular price is $30).
Please note, each tuber will need to have either a Gondola ticket (PSF price is $32.00, The retail price is $45) or a lift ticket in order to access the tubing hill which is located at the top of the Gondola. I would actually recommend every non-skier take the Gondola as the views are INCREDIBLE.
