Fortunately, sitting down doesn’t have to mean sitting still – not if you’re a snow tuber!

A snow tuber isn’t a kind of potato – it’s a person who likes speeding downhill on a soft, bouncy inner tube. Snow tubing, which combines the thrills of waterslide tubing with the chills of sledding, is one of the fastest-growing winter activities in America. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels, and it's offered at many of Traverse City’s winter recreation centers.

This is pure winter fun, and it doesn’t require much more skill than the ability to sit down, hang on tight and do a little high-pitched screaming as you hurtle downhill. Many local tubing areas feature tandem tubes that allow friends and families to do their tubing  together, and automatic lifts to bring you back to the top for ride after ride after ride!
