Snow Tubing Tips for a Fun and Safe Experience

Snow Tubing Tips

If you’re looking for a thrilling winter adventure, snow tubing in the Pocono Mountains is a must-try activity.  Our Pocono Pines Lake House is a beautiful waterfront vacation rental property located near the heart of the Pocono Mountains. Like any adventurous activity, there are some tricks to make the most of your time while ensuring your safety. Here are some essential tips for snow tubing in the Poconos:

Choose the Right Location

The Poconos Mountains offer several snow tubing parks with varying degrees of difficulty, age requirements, and features. Our Pocono Pines Lake House is conveniently located near many ski resorts. Before heading out, research online the options available and choose one that fits your skill level and interests. Some places have special lanes for children, some for-group tubing, and some for night tubing under the stars. Blue Mountain Resort is one of the most popular snow tubing parks in the Poconos, offering multiple lanes and a conveyor lift system to take you back up to the top of the hill.

Dress Appropriately

The Poconos Mountains can get quite cold in winter, with temperatures dropping below freezing. Therefore, you should wear appropriate clothes to keep you warm and comfortable. Opt for layers that can be easily removed in case you get too hot, waterproof outerwear, gloves, hats, and thick socks. Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes, preferably waterproof boots or snowshoes. Check out REI for tips on dressing for winter sports.

Safety First

Snow tubing is a fun activity, but it can also be dangerous if you don’t follow the rules. Before getting on your tube, listen carefully to the safety instructions from the staff. Always use the designated lanes and wait for the green light before starting your descent. Avoid standing, to prevent injuries, and never push or bump into other tubers. Finally, remember to wear the helmet provided as an extra safety measure. For more safety tips, check out

Get Creative with Your Tubing Style

Once you get the hang of snow tubing, it’s time to add some personal touch to your style. There are several ways to ride the tube other than sitting down, such as lying on your stomach, going down backward or spinning around. Experiment and have fun with different techniques; the faster and more creative, the better. For inspiration, visit for some thrill-seeking snow tubing videos.

Refuel and Relax

Snow tubing can be an exhaustive activity that requires a lot of energy. Take breaks in between sessions to refuel on snacks and drinks, recharge your batteries and relax. Many snow tubing parks have on-site restaurants, cafes, and hot chocolate stands, where you can warm up, socialize, and enjoy the winter wonderland around you. Jack Frost Big Boulder has an on-site cafeteria and lounge area where you can take a break and grab a bite to eat. After a long day on the slopes, our Pocono Pines Lake House is the perfect place to unwind with your whole family.

With these tips in mind, you’re ready for an exciting snow tubing adventure in the Pocono Mountains. Remember to take in the beautiful scenery, enjoy the ride and most importantly, stay safe!
