Snow tubing is fun. Although, I haven't been in several years.

I feel a weekend devoted to the winter fun activity may be in order. The only thing to dislike about snow-tubing is making your way back up the hill to slide down it again, and again.

What better place to play in the snow than Mount Hood in Oregon?


The Mt. Hood Skibowl takes top honors when it comes to tubing. This is an excellent choice for parents to take their kids to experience! Mount Hood is a snow-lovers paradise. And, making your way back up isn't so bad. There's a conveyor to take you back up, so you can enjoy yourself.

Mt. Hood Skibowl is set to open for the 22.23 season on Thanksgiving weekend.

Day tubing at Mt. Hood Skibowl features 3 sessions running from 11 am to 4 pm.

Weekend nights on the mountain feature Cosmic Tubing, with 60,000 LED lights, laser light shows, black lights, colored lights with rocking music, and more. This is awesome fun for everyone. Cosmic Tubing operates Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, starting December 16th. There are 3 sessions from 5 pm till 10 pm.
