“We are excited to welcome families to Snow Trails for a fun night Glow Tubing under new animated LED Lights, all while contributing to our great partner who offers assistance to our local community,” said Nate Wolleson Marketing Manager.

“We began this event back in 2006 when the Tubing Park first opened and have collected truckloads of food over the years, so are happy to keep it going to benefit those in need,” he added.

Snow Trails Vertical Descent Tubing Park offers two-hour Tubing Tickets to include the use of a snow tube, conveyor carpet lift ride to avoid walking uphill – typically required with sled-riding – and the use of multiple tubing lanes for a fun snowy descent under the glowing LED lights.

Non-perishable donations will be collected at the Tubing Park Ticket Hut when redeeming reservations. The Hut is adjacent to the tubing lanes and the Tubing Lodge, which offers a snack bar, restrooms, and a panoramic view of tubers sliding-by.
