A favorite activity among locals and visitors, young and old, families and friends is snow tubing and sledding. Winter Park and the Fraser Valley has a variety of locations to choose from. Check them out.
Smack dab in the middle of downtown Winter Park lies Hideaway Park’s free sledding hill. It’s a small hill, but plenty of fun, and sleds are provided free of use. A great place for families with small kids; you can go any time from dawn ’til dusk. There are also picnic tables, two pavilions, public restrooms and a brand-new play ground.

The Colorado Adventure Park tubing hill is located right next to the ol’ Fraser Tubing Hill in the town of Fraser. Tons of fun is on offer here with four separate tubing lanes, mini snowmobiles (aka snowscoots) for kids 6-13yrs, a free sledding slope for little tykes, and a firepit for smores! They also have a warming hut at the base of the hill, which is also where you can buy your tickets.

Right next door to the Colorado Adventure Park, we have the Fraser Snow Tubing Hill. This long standing company offers a rope-tow to pull you back up the hill on the tube, so no worries about hiking the cumbersome donut back up a 1/4 mile hill. You can also keep warm in the warming hut and buy hot chocolate at their snack bar.
They are open from noon to 9pm Monday-Thursday, 10am to 10pm on Friday & Saturday and 10am to 9pm on Sundays.

Snow Mountain Ranch Sledding & Tubing Hill
If you’re looking for something bigger than the free sledding hill, but like value for money, then you should definitely take a drive out to Snow Mountain Ranch (aka YMCA of the Rockies). They have a good sized hill for sledding or tubing with a rope-tow. You can use their sleds or tubes or even bring your own.
The cost to use the YMCA facilities is $15 per person for the entire day. This day pass includes the use of the sledding & tubing hill, olympic-size swimming pool and indoor climbing wall. Normal hours of operation are 9am to 5pm on Sundays-Thursdays and 9am to 8pm on Fridays & Saturdays. Re-entry is allowed if you present your receipt when returning. Kids four years old and under are free. For information, click here or call 888-573-9622.
