1. Wisp Resort

We have played at Wisp Resort in the warmer months, but really, the Wisp Resort is a ski resort. I am so excited they have snow tubing too! Wisp provides the snow tube and even hauls you up the hill!  I

2. Roundtop Mountain Resort

Roundtop Mountain Resort Snow Tubing features up to 10 large tubing lanes. The runs are 800′ long and have a vertical drop of 80′. You don’t have to walk up the hill afterwards because Roundtop has a covered Magic Carpet lift that takes you back up to the top of the hill! Roundtop has a snowmaking team that ensures there is plenty of snow for tubing. Guests must be 42″ or taller to tube the main hill.
 
Kiddie Tubing is a special area for guests 41″tall and under. Smaller child-sized tubes are a great fit for younger tubers. Parents and kids either walk back up, or parents can pull their child back up in the tube. Parent’s are asked not to ride tubes in this area as it is designed with smaller guests in mind.

9. Blackwater Falls State Park Sled Run

Not technically a snow tubing location, but soooo much fun anyway! Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia offers the longest sled run on the East Coast. Wow right?

Tickets are valid for one two-hour session. The sled run closes for one hour between each session. You must purchase tickets in advance as well. 

More from their website: “The Blackwater Sled Run is more than a perfectly groomed hill. Half the fun is riding to the top on our conveyor belt, the Magic Carpet. Our Magic Carpet is the longest on the east coast and takes riders through a cozy wooded path to the top of the hill right in their sleds. Ride up and sled down – it’s fun both ways! Watch the time-lapse video of ride to the top to get an idea for what it’s like.”
