Snow tubing in NJ is an exhilarating outdoor activity that the whole family can get in on—ski resorts pump in snow for easy slides down wide lanes; there are conveyor belts to help you get back up a hill fast; and you sit on comfy inner tubes for cushy rides (no plastic discs here). Plus, it doesn’t require a skill set like skiing, and parents can hop in to ride with littles.

10 places to go snow tubing in NJ and nearby
At this Bergen County mountain for snow tubing in NJ, adults, bigs, and littles can coast down the lanes, which vary with different roller levels and pitches. Sessions are 1-2 hours, and purchasing them online in advance is recommended since sessions sell out quickly (you can buy tickets up to 6 days ahead).
200 Campgaw Road, Mahwah, NJ 07430
This resort is perfect for snow tubing in NJ, as it sits on over five acres and is one of the largest in the area. While the minimum height requirement is between 36″ and 42″ with an adult, older kids (and you) can partake in the adrenaline-fueled rides with a magic carpet that takes you up the hill. And since there are no on-spot ticket sales, you’ll need to make a reservation and buy ahead.
200 Route 94, Vernon Township, NJ 07462
This vast park has over 40 lanes to slide down, with daytime slides and Galactic Night Tubing after dark when the trails get a glow up. Littles can’t go solo, but they can ride in a double tube or get hooked up to your tube with a chain. And if you need to fuel up apres-sliding, this full-service resort has lots of options, including sit-down restaurants, a cafe, and a pizza spot.
193 Resort Drive, Tannersville, PA 18372
Blue Mountain Resort
Dubbed the Largest SnowTubing Park in The US, and rightly so—with up to 52 lanes, three lifts, and snow tubing runs over 1000 ft long, you’ll zip down the hills more than you’ll be in line for the lifts. Kids need to be 36″ tall to ride, and if you want to ride with them, there are double tubes. But if hanging back is more speed, cozy up to a firepit with a food truck, bar, and cafe service and a stellar view of the tubing hills. Older kids will want to slide down during the Sonic Snow Tubing Experience on lanes 1 and 2 when the park transforms into a laser light and music show after dark.
1660 Blue Mountain Drive, Palmerton, PA 18071
Shawnee Mountain Tubing Park offers day and night tubing and two surface lifts to whisk you to the top. Ride by yourself or take a tandem tube with the kids (they must be at least 4 years old to ride). Snow tubing tickets are only sold online and tend to sell out days in advance, so plan accordingly.
401 Hollow Road, East Stroudsburg, PA 18301
Montage Mountain Resort
Depending on where you live, this mountain resort may require a whole day trip, but snow tubing sessions are 2-4 hours. If you want to hang out after a rousing tubing session, rent one of their Midland tents near the lodge to have a home base, get warm by the firepits, and take in the sights.
1000 Montage Mountain Road, Scranton, PA 18507
Go fast at this family mountain resort where there’s something for all ages. Big kids can whiz down 600-foot lanes, and littles will love spending time in the Little Tikes Tubing area (adult supervision required), a smaller, kid-sized hill, especially for them. Snow tubing session reservations are encouraged.
51 Old Mt. Peter Road, Warwick, NY 10990
“No skills” are needed to snow tube down 1,000 feet of fluffy snow at Hunter Mountain. Glide down a hill and take “the Magic Carpet” back up to the top in standard-size or double-size tubes. You must purchase snow tubing tickets 48 hours before your intended arrival time.
64 Klein Avenue, Hunter, NY 12442
Jack Frost Big Boulder
Take a trip over to Big Boulder for a snow tube run. With summits of 2,000 feet or higher, Jack Frost Mountain and Big Boulder Mountain pride themselves in being the first to open the season and the last to close in the spring, so you have plenty of time to experience lots of winter fun.
357 Big Boulder Drive, Lake Harmony, PA 18624
Whitetail Mountain Resort
Drive across the border for a two-hour session of snow tubing fun. All riders must be 42 inches tall to ride the larger run, and children 41 inches can ride on the “Kiddie Tubing” runs. Post-slide, sip a cup of cocoa as you warm by firepits outside. Tickets are sold in advance and online only.
13805 Blairs Valley Road, Mercersburg, PA 17236
