Sledding & Tubing in Washington State
Slide Into Fun this Winter in the Cascades
There's nothing quite as benignly exhilarating as sliding down a hill on a tube or sled. Snow makes for a gentle teacher in case you get going too fast, and the adrenaline rush is certainly noteworthy. A number of hidden sled hills in the Stevens Pass area make the perfect escape for families looking for an afternoon spent outside barreling over the snow. Here are some of our favorites.
Tubing the Summit of Snoqualmie
Thrills, Hills, and Spills for All Ages
With more than a dozen groomed lanes, a covered conveyor belt to get you up the hill, inner tubes and everything you need, the Tubing Center is the perfect place to play in the snow. To learn more and buy tickets for your next trip click here.
Lt. Michael Adams Tubing Hill
100 Ft Hill with Rope Tow
Snow tubing is fun for the whole family. Sit on a provided tube as the rope tow pulls you to the top and then sends you gliding down the 100-foot hill. This is perfect for group or family activities. Snacks and hot cocoa are available at the lodge. For tickets and info click here.
Hyak Sno Park
Best Hill for Young Sledders
A great pit-stop for an afternoon of family friendly fun, the Hyak Sno-Park Sledding Hill is a well-maintained slope meant for the young sledders in all of us. The terrain at Hyak is relatively tame; you won't find significant hazards or steep drops. Though popular with everyone, the area is ideal for younger sledders. For more information click here.
Mt Baker Sled Hill
The Best Things in Life Are Free
When you mention sledding, most locals think of Mount Baker first. Although a bit of a drive, the height, expanse and steepness of the available sledding slopes, wider availability throughout the ski season, and spectacular views make this a favorite destination for adventurers and die-hards.
