Magic of winter: Snow tubing at the Horseshoe Resort

Snow tubing and Snowshoeing are fun activities to enjoy during winter.  The scenic hills at the Horseshoe Resort makes it a perfect place to enjoy these activities.  Horseshoe resort is located in the natural snow belt area and is surrounded by beautiful nature.
We are big fans of sliding down hill and enjoy activities such as tobogganing, so we had an awesome evening tubing.
We can purchase tubing tickets at the Tack Shop located within the Adventure Park.  During the winter season they have special perks such as on Wednesdays we can go tubing from 4pm to 8pm for Free.
Tubing is pretty simple... get the tickets, grab a tube per person, go up their long "magic carpet," and then stand in line for your turn to go down the hill.  We can go in the the tube by our self or with up to 7 tubes connected.  All four of us went together, and then we went two at a time.  
The staff at the Tubing hills will ask if we want to spin or not, I would recommend spinning at least once it is really fun :) 
We spent a couple of hours snow tubing before we called it a night and enjoyed the comfortable accommodation at the Horseshoe Resort.  The next morning we did some snowshoeing before heading home, more about that with pictures coming soon.

  1. Oh my goodness! How much was fun was that?!? I've been deciding whether to take the kids tubing and Now I feel like I have to do it!

  2. we have a place like this in soldier hollow in Utah. SO fun

  3. I have never been tubing before....I am not a huge hill person, when I go sledding I like small, beginner type hills. My hubby has built one in our front yard for our boys, and it is perfect for me!

  4. That looks like so much fun. I've always wanted to try that but we don't have anything like that around home.

  5. Looks like you guys had fun! I haven't been tubing in years.. Maybe next year with the kids.. I really don't like winter though.. lol

  6. We spent some time at the horseshoe in the fall a couple of years ago. we would love to go back
