West Virginia Is Home To The Country’s Best Snow Tubing Park And You’ll Want To Visit

The winter season means the return of beautiful vistas throughout the state as well as outdoor activities in the Mountain State that can only be enjoyed in the snow. Whether you’ve been to a bona fide snow tubing attraction or not, the hill you dreamed of each winter as a kid is right here in your own back yard in West Virginia, and you’ll want to glide down it on a tube!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Ready for a fun activity the entire family can enjoy?! A height requirement of 44 inches is required to tube on the big hill; however, there is a smaller hill at the Kiddie Park for children under 44 inches. Rates and time blocks vary and range from 4 hours to all day; prices range from $30.50/person to $38.50/person. Skiers and snowboarding pass holders can add on a tubing pass for just $17. A pass to the Kiddie Park tubing hill for children under 44 inches is a mere $5.

Winterplace Ski Resort is located at 100 Old Flat Top Mountain Rd., Ghent, WV 25843. Learn more about the tubing park at this link on the official website.
