Tubing in Summit County is the Ultimate Winter Rush

W hen it comes to winter activities, the truth is, it’s all just inventing creative ways to have fun in the snow. Arguably the most fun—and the simplest—of all snowbound games is snow tubing in Summit County. We love helping our vacation rental guests have the best experience while visiting Breckenridge. Besides skiing and snowboarding, tubing is undoubtedly what our Book Breck Vacation Homes guests ask us about the most.

There is NOT a tubing park in Breckenridge, however, tubing and sledding can be done at the free sledding hill at Carter Park in Breckenridge. There are multiple tubing parks in Summit County just outside of Breckenridge with magic carpets for easy trips back up the hill.

Breckenridge Carter Park

High Street, Breckenridge

The Carter Park sledding hill does not have a magic carpet and requires a short hike up the hill, but bring your sleds and tubes and hit the snow for FREE. Come bundled for cold weather with sled or tube in tow and in no time, you’ll be gliding down a snow-covered hill at speeds guaranteed to bring a smile your face! Directions: Drive south on Harris Street in Breckenridge. The street dead ends at the parking lot for Carter Park.  Tip: Breckenridge Market at 311 South Ridge Street in Breckenridge sells snow tubes (as in photo above) which are your best option for sledding hill fun. The plastic sleds tend to break easily. Tubes are softer and go faster and further down the hill.

Dates: Open daily, snow dependent.

Rainbow Park

The Rainbow Park Sledding Hill in Silverthorne is the perfect place for families to play together. The sledding hill offers a variety of pitches and heights for all ages and wraps around the multi-purpose field, which is an ideal place for snowman building or throwing snowballs.

The Recreation Center is right next door with public restrooms, a warm lobby, and a variety of low-priced snacks on sale at the pro shop. For the more adventurous, many features at the Rainbow Park playground are accessible in the winter. The giant slide is a lot faster with snow pants, so hold on tight!

Parking is available adjacent to the hill and can be accessed via a driveway behind the Recreation Center. Or, simply park on the north side of the Recreation Center’s main parking lot at 430 Rainbow Drive.

Summit County has taken tubing to a whole new level, offering thrills for more adventurous visitors and a whole lot of giggles for the tamer set. Read on to find out why tubing in Summit County is the ultimate winter rush…

  • Tubing is easy and affordable. Unlike other ways of zipping down a hill or mountain, tubing doesn’t require any athletic skill or special equipment. Skiing and snowboarding are awesome, but they can be intimidating. Ziplining is amazing, but the heights can be a turnoff. Tubing? It’s just you, the tube and the snow!
  • The whole family can get involved. Nothing can make you feel like a kid again the way tubing can. If kids are in your party, you’ll be having a blast right alongside them.
  • It’s still an adventure. So you’re not doing any black diamonds while tubing, but you still get the thrill of a speedy downhill descent—some places even have lifts in their tubing parks, just like for skiers.
