Lou’s List OF Places To Snow Tube Near The Albany Area

Winter finally hit the Albany area this week, and it may inspire you to some wintertime fun stuff. One thing that came to mind was snow tubing. I did this awhile back and loved it. I will admit, the first time down the mountain is the toughest. After that, you couldn’t keep me off the trail. Here are a few places to snow tube within a reasonable driving distance. Better do it soon because spring is just around the corner.

5) Hunter Mountain

A beautiful place in the Catskills. They have special events for the snow tubers.

4) Windham Mountain

This is one more beautiful Catskill Mountain place. Complete with a 650-foot snow-covered slope to do your snow tubing.

3) Gore Mountain

You could head north to the Adirondacks to North Creek. You can snow tube in the evening under the lights.

2) Tubby Tube Company

This is in Lake Luzerne. They have 12 runs to enjoy, complete with bumps for a daring ride. Besides snow tubing, you might want to keep this place in mind for the summer. That’s when they do lazy river tubing.

1) West Mountain

Just off exit 18 of the Northway in Queensbury. Snow tubing complete with six chutes.


The list is not because I like one place better than another, it’s just a list of places for you to check out. This is a great way to enjoy some family fun in the winter. Have you ever went snow tubing?
