Snow tubing and sledding are extremely popular activities in the Northwest. Tubing is a great way for families to spend some fun time together, laughing and enjoying the outdoors. Here are the top snow tubing hills in the Northwest US, including the states of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, and Washington.
Just a short drive from Seattle, the snow tubing hill at The Summit at Snoqualmie is fun for kids and adults. Once called Snowflake Hill, tubing is offered in sessions and the tubes are included with admission. Viewing-only tickets are available for those who wish to be part of the fun but don't plan to slide down the slope themselves.
