We’re fortunate to have plenty of places to snow tubing in Edmonton, and just outside of the city, a short trip away. The fun winter activity is the favourite of our kids, because there’s no work in heading back up the hill to enjoy a slide down on a tube – the magic carpet will bring you right back up!
Here’s where you can find snow tubing in Edmonton
There’s a brand new Edmonton snow tubing hill at Edmonton Ski Club. It’s $15/person, and there are sessions every weekend, and all the way through the Christmas holidays. Dates are generally booked for weekends until January, but if you’re lucky you can snag a spot on a weekday!
Kids aged 4 and under are free if they share a tube with their adult, but aged four and over can head up the hill, and go down on their own. There’s a magic carpet to make it easy to come back up the hill, and it’s easy for little kids to bring their own tube back up.
The original snow tubing hill in Edmonton, Sunridge is $20 for a session, and will pull you up the hill in a rotating tube. Kids must be 7+ to tube down the hill at Sunridge, and the hill is slightly longer than the one at Edmonton Ski Club, this year.
Located just 50 minutes north of St. Albert, Tawatinaw Valley is one of the hidden gems outside of the city for snow tubing near Edmonton with kids. It’s worth the trip because it’s only $5/person, with a helmet rental of only two dollars, and is close enough to the city for some winter fun on the cheap. Tubing time slots must be booked online in advance and each tube will be assigned to a user. You’ll have an hour and half to tube, and children 2+ can tube down with their parents. To go on their own, children must be 42″ tall/4 years. To get back up the hill, it’s walking.
Tubing passes for Eastlink Park are another fun option near Edmonton, about an hour and half outside of the city. Tubing passes for a family of four are $40, with one of the longest tubing runs, at 580 feet! Plus, there’s an easy magic carpet to get back up the hill.
