Grab your kiddos, bundle up, and then it’s time to hit the slopes to go snow tubing in NJ. It’s an exhilarating and thrilling outdoor activity to do with the fam—ski resorts pump in snow for easy slides, there are conveyor belts to get back up a hill fast, wide lanes, and comfy inner tubes for a cushy ride (beats those plastic discs). Keep in mind that snow tubing resorts require masks at all times and reservations online to limit capacity, so check the most updated info on a resort website or Facebook page. Also, current COVID-19 restrictions are in place for interstate travel—if you’re thinking of heading across the border, it’s best to get a heads up before you go to another state.

Snow tubing in NJ is an exhilarating and thrilling outdoor activity
This Mahwah snow tubing destination will have the whole fam tubing down their lanes, which vary with different roller levels and pitch. Sessions are 2 hours and must be purchased online and in advance (you can buy up to 6 days ahead).
200 Campgaw Road
As a snow tubing park in NJ that sits on more than five acres, this is one of the largest in the area. While the minimum age requirement is 5, older kids (and you too) 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 this year, you’ll need to make a reservation and buy ahead.
200 Route 94
Vernon Township, NJ
This vast park has over 40 lanes to slide down, and if you don’t want to ride during the day, they light up the course, and you can go “galactic snow tubing” at night. Sessions are two hours long, and they recommend you buy tickets online and in advance. While littles can’t go solo, they can ride in a double tube, or you can chain with them. If you need to fuel up after all that activity, there’s a bunch of food trucks, a draft beverage trailer, and other outdoor dining options to choose from.
193 Resort Drive
Blue Mountain Resort
With 34 lanes, three lifts, and three-hour long tube sessions, you’re sure to get a lot of ride time. Plus, with snow tubing lanes over 1000 ft long (the longest in Pennsylvania), you’ll zip down the hills more than you’ll be in line for the lifts. Tickets must be purchased online, and they recommend that you get to the resort an hour early to have enough time to park and pick up your tickets. Your kiddos must be 36” tall to ride, and the resort has double tubes so you can ride with them.
1660 Blue Mountain Drive
Ride down by yourself or take a tandem tube with the kids (they have to be under 46” tall). Snow tubing tickets are being sold online only, and they’re limiting the number of people per session to promote social distancing—they tend to sell out days in advance, so plan accordingly.
401 Hollow Road
East Stroudsburg, PA
Montage Mountain Resort
Depending on where you live, this mountain resort may require a whole day trip, but snow tubing sessions are 3 hours, and they’re serving food and drinks on an outside deck with communal fire pits. If you’re looking to hang for a while after a great sledding session, rent one of their Midland tents near the lodge to have a home base, get warm and take in the sights.
1000 Montage Mountain Road
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 sessions are limited to 1.5 hours for social distancing, so reservations are encouraged.
51 Old Mt. Peter Road
Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park
Pack as many rides as you can into a two-hour snow tubing session—and tickets sell quickly, so call ahead (there are no online ticket sales) to save your spots. Make sure to check their Facebook page for updates on closings and conditions.
