A winter day outdoors is not complete without a bit of tubing or sledding! At the Grand Lake Nordic Center we have a FREE tubing hill available for guests – whether you are out to ski or snowshoe also or not!

We provide ten tubes to be shared, or you are welcome to bring your own tubes or sleds (as long as the sled does not have a sharp metal edge). We do not have a tow rope available, but do maintain a packed trail to the top of the hill. It is fun for kids and adults of all ages! Donations for the use of the hill are appreciated.
