The Longest Snow Tubing Run In Alaska Can Be Found At Arctic Valley Ski Area
Are you looking for great outdoor fun this winter? Arctic Valley Ski Area runs a snow tubing run in one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Alaska. Bring the whole family to this awesome lodge, only 10 miles outside of Anchorage, to spend a tubing session riding down gorgeous mountain terrain.
Arctic Valley Ski Area is a non-profit located just outside Anchorage, Alaska.
A quick drive up into the mountains from the city gives you gorgeous views and tons of great snow to ski or snow tube on. The snow tubing at this beautiful spot is so popular, they've expanded the number of daily sessions offered!
This is a great winter activity for the whole family, and there's no age limit as long as you can get in and out of the tube on your own.
While it's only one person per tube, feel free to link tubes together as a family. Make sure not to head down the mountain until everyone at the bottom has cleared the area!
There are four 1.5 hour sessions per day, and you can book tickets in advance on their website.
As each session maxes out at 50 riders, it is highly encouraged to purchase tickets first so you don't show up to a sold out run. You can't purchase tickets online the day of riding, however. Make sure to arrive 30 minutes early to fill out your waiver, and to grab tickets if you weren't able to book them online.
Tickets are sold as large tube for adults, or small tube for kids.
General admission is $16.00 per person, or if you're an Anchorage Ski Club Regular or a Life Member they are only $10.00 per session. If you are an Arctic Valley Season Pass holder, the tubing sessions are free.
Due to an increase in popular demand, they have new hours!
This 2019-2020 winter season they will have expanded hours. They are now open Thursday through Sunday. They will have four sessions: 1:00 p.m. through 2:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. through 4:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. through 6:00 p.m., and 6:00 through 7:30 p.m.
Their gorgeous lodge has the Afterglow Cafe, with a limited menu but delicious food.
Grab a local beer on draft and relax after your day out in the cold on the mountain. The lodge can also be rented for events, and weddings are very popular in the summer and fall seasons.
This awesome tube park has a projected opening date of November 30th.
The park will stay open from November all the way until April 4th, 2020. This leaves you plenty of weekends to grab your friends and family and get out on the mountain to go snow tubing!
