Snowtubing FAQ

Do I need to be a certain age or height to snow tube?

Yes. In order to participate in snow tubing, you must be at least 42 inches tall and 5 years old.

Can my child ride on my lap?

For the safety of all of our guests and staff, Mountain Creek does not permit riders to carry other persons on their lap. All guests must ride in their own tube, no sharing.

Do I have to walk back up to the top of the hill?

NO WAY!! Our magic carpet lift will give you a ride back up to the top. Think of them as moving sidewalks that go uphill... you simply step onto the conveyor at the bottom, and then step off once your effortless ride to the top is complete!

Can I bring my own sled or tube?

We do not allow personal sleds or tubes to be used on our tube hill. The tube is included in the ticket price for a tubing session.

How should I dress for snow tubing?

You will find a variation in temperature on the mountain itself. So consider layering your clothes so that you can adjust to changes in temperature and precipitation. You should dress for "snow" with waterproof clothing. Warm clothing including long underwear, gloves or mittens, hat or headband, jacket and ski/snow pants should be worn.

It is highly recommended that you stay away from wearing cotton clothing (jeans, sweatshirts, sweatpants, etc.) next to your skin, because it will absorb sweat and snow and make you cold.

Remember that the sun exposure could be a problem so be sure to use sunscreen and eye protection.

Tubing participants are asked to wear hiking boots or waterproof shoes. For safety reasons, ski boots and hard shell boots are prohibited.

If you forgot any clothing items, stop by our retail shop Monkey Trail's in the Red Tail Lodge.  

Is it possible for snow tubing sessions to sell out?

Yes. Due to the popularity of this family activity, it is possible that any tubing session will sell out, especially on weekends and holidays. In order to provide the most exciting and safe experience for our tubing guests, it is necessary for us to limit the amount of people in the tubing area.    

Can I pre-purchase tubing tickets for my family over the phone?

Snow Tubing can be pre-purchased by calling 973-827-2000.  Same day reservations are not accepted.

Does my season pass work for tubing?

Yes. Season Passholders have free access to snowtubing at Drop Zone Snowtubing.
