Tubing FAQs

Where can I buy a Tubing Ticket? Arctic Blast Snow Tubing Tickets can (only) be purchased at the Arctic Blast Tubing Lodge.  The Tubing Lodge is in a separate location from the Ski and Snowboarding parking lot. Follow the signs from the Paoli Peaks access road and this will lead you to the new parking lot and tube lodge. Tubing tickets are available at the Tubing Lodge ticket window…just walk-up, purchase your ticket, grab a tube and GO!

Can more than one person ride on a tube? No, only one (1) person per tube is allowed. Under the appropriate surface conditions, we do allow several tubes to “link” together. For children 6 and under, one (1) parent will be allowed to tube with their child while holding the handle of their child's tube.  (NOTE: The parent should be in the lead tube and the child behind for appropriate safety measures)

How old do you have to be to tube? Paoli Peaks does not define the age requirement. We expect people to use common sense and good judgment. Remember, only one person is allowed per tube. We do require that all children under the age of 6 years of age be accompanied by an adult at all times. This is important, as most children will need assistance at the bottom of the hill - getting out of the tube, walking safely and in a timely manner away from the lanes, and in the right direction of the tube lift.

Can I bring my own sled or tube? We do not allow personal sleds or tubes to be used on our tube hill. Tube rental is included in the ticket price for a tubing session.

How do I get back up the hill after my tube ride? You can effortlessly ride back up the hill on our state-of-the-art surface lift. Please note that you will keep the same tube throughout your 3-hour session.

Does the weather affect the tubing ride? Yes, the weather can affect the type of ride you get down the lanes, so check the Snow Report and see if the conditions promote slow or fast tubing and take your pick! Colder conditions promote a faster tubing surface and warmer conditions will promote a slower tubing surface.  During slower tubing times, it is more likely you will be allowed to "link" tubes with other people in your group.  Under faster tubing conditions, tube "linking" will not be allowed (Children 6 & under and parents are the exception). Please be aware that surface conditions can change very quickly; especially when the sun goes down. It is possible tube "linking" will both be allowed and not allowed during your 3-hour tubing session.

Can I purchase a tubing pass for the entire season? No, we do not offer a Tubing Season Pass. Tubing is not included in your ski/board pass.

What do I need to wear for snow-tubing? Dress according to the weather, as if you were going sledding. We suggest dressing in layers…appropriate footwear and waterproof clothing are recommended. Gloves and Hats are suggested. Clothing and snow boot rental are available at the tubing lodge.

Can I wear Hard Ski, Snowboard Boots, or Helmets in the Tube Park? No, HARD Ski or Snowboard boots and Helmets are not safe for the people that might be hit by them. SOFT Snowboard Boots are generally okay to tube with, but please be advised they can be refused by the park manager if he/she feels it poses a danger.

Can I walk from the Tube Hill or the Ski and Snowboard hill (or vice versa)? No, due to the location of the Tube Hill, it is unsafe to walk to or from the tubing hill to the ski/board hill. We recommend driving from one parking lot to the other.

Can I use my Tubing Ticket to go Skiing or Snowboarding? No and Yes! No, because a tubing ticket is strictly for tubing.  Yes, because you can turn in your current seasons tubing ticket to the Ski/Snowboard ticket windows of the Paoli Peaks lodge to receive a DISCOUNTED SKI/BOARD TICKET!  Find out about discounted rates and restriction on our Deals and Discounts Page.
