TUBING

Ever flown down a snow-covered hill with the wind rushing through your hair and looked down to see an inflated tube? If not, you should try it. Whether you’ve never touched skis or a snowboard, or just want to try something different, snow tubing is a great way down the hill. Our snow tube park, the first in the Banff area, has a magic carpet and large sliding lanes to go down along with your group of friends or your family. It’s a unique way to enjoy the slopes.

This tour brings snowmobile guiding to a new level. It is an insight into the decision-making processes of our guides, and offers an educational experience to those looking for not only snow safety, but backcountry skill development on and off the sled.
