Time for fast-paced tubing fun! Holiday Valley Tubing Company opened for the season on Jan. 1, ready for a season of thrills!

Grab your friends and family and enjoy tubing fun for all ages. (Minimum of seven years old and 42” tall to use the big hill, Little Tubers hill open, weather permitting, for younger kids.) All you have to do is sit down on a large inflatable tube, hang on and experience the exhilaration of pure winter fun.

The tubing park has up to 22 lanes that are 900 feet long and drop 100 feet in vertical, plus two handle tows to pull you back up the hill—all the fun without the work. According to Snow Tubing Source, Holiday Valley Tubing Company is the fifth largest tubing park in the country, out of 200 parks.

Holiday Valley Tubing Company is located on Route 242, just four miles from Holiday Valley. A free shuttle service to and from Holiday Valley is available on the hour per request during operating hours. Pickup is at the Resort Services Center turn around or the Inn at Holiday Valley.
