We cap the number of guests on the tubing hill at 65 - 70 per session, so "unscheduled extras" in your group may be waiting for the next
available session. We do not "share tubes" between multiple
participants (so please do not ask).
Snow tubing tickets are $20 (cash) or $22.75 (credit or debit card) per person for a 1½ hour session.
The cost of the ticket includes the use of our snow tubes and rope tow.
Children and adults are the same price due to the operating restrictions
caused by Covid-19. Children under 42 inches tall must ride with a
paid adult. Starting times for public sessions, as well as additional
snow tubing information, are discussed below. Private group sessions

There is only one exception to this policy (see next paragraph).
Unused, previous season reservation certificate(s) are no longer valid.

IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR THE 2021/2022 SEASON:
The lodge will allow a reservation of ten or more to be reduced by one guest if contacted at least
48 hours in advance.
If a reservation is cancelled or headcounts are reduced with less than 48 hours advance notice, your credit card will be
immediately charged for the total number reserved.
Private tubes, sleds, sliding devices, snowboards, skis, and other similar equipment are not allowed
anywhere on property owned and operated by Bear Creek Lodge. We are strictly a snow tubing operation.
The first session of the day is designated “Early Bird” and is highly recommended for small groups, birthday parties, and young children.
The 10 AM - Noon and 6 - 8 PM sessions (when available) are considered "value sessions"
as they each have an extra half hour of snowtubing.
Registration will be downstairs in
the Mountain Store until further notice. Sign-in begins
45 minutes prior to the start of the session.
To speed up registration, we suggest that you download and properly fill out the
Liability Release Form

during registration, individual payments on a reservation for 2 or more
must be presented by just one person. The individual presenting final
payment assumes all liability that the information presented on the
Liability Release Form is true and correctly filled out.
The 4 - 6 PM and 6 - 8 PM sessions are an excellent time for large groups to book private time on the tubing hill.
