Four of Oregon's ski resorts run tubing parks to add to the family fun on the slopes. [R265R, Mt. Bachelor], [R180R, Hoodoo], [R275R, Mt. Hood Skibowl], and [R502R, Willamette Pass] groom lanes for sliding accompanied by screams.

Mt. Bachelor's Snowblast Tubing Park operates six tubing lanes Fridays through Sundays and holidays. The 800-foot-long lanes are serviced by a surface lift fill during sellout sessions. Tickets are available for all day or two-hour sessions that start at 10 a.m., noon, or 2 p.m.

Hoodoo runs a tow for its seven 800-foot-long Autobahn tubing lanes that are open 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays and holidays. You can buy all-day tickets or tickets good for 10 runs. Those opting to walk up the hill instead of taking the tow can get 15 runs for the price of 10. Younger kids can play on the Snow Bunny Sled Hill with their own sleds.

Mt. Hood Ski Bowl includes a lift-served tubing hill in their adventure park, along with a kiddie snowmobile track. Tickets are available for two-hour tubing sessions 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Sundays.

Willamette Pass operates their tubing park 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekends. Lift service is currently not available, so those tubing must hike up the hill. Tickets are available for two-hour sessions, but you can add additional hours.

Call the resorts for conditions on the tubing hills and rates. Each resort also has different minimum age and height requirements for children. Tickets run $12-16 for two hours.
