Where to Go Snow Tubing in the Fox Valley & Beyond

Snow tubing can provide an adventurous afternoon for your family. There are many hills within two hours of Appleton and the Fox Cities that range widely in run height and length. You’ll find options that take you to ski hills or your neighborhood hill. 

Tips

  • Go Early – Popular tubing places tend to be busy on perfect winter days
  • Bundle Up – As with any winter activity, bundle up in many layers
  • Consider hand and feet warmers!
  • Use the Bathroom Before – Try to go to the bathroom before you hit the hill
  • Bring a thermos of hot chocolate and plenty of water.
  • Tube safely: Face forward, follow hill rules regarding riders per tube and height regulations.
  • Ensure that your personal inflatable tube is a winter snow tube and not a summer water tube!
  • COVID Updates – Check websites or call for changes and mask policies.
