  • Loved my first time snow tubing here; we were fortunate to have chosen the morning slide on a clear sunny, not too chilly day in one of the longest tubes in Canada! We first got on to the lane that’s called “Toilet Bowl”, and oh man, was it ever fast and fun! On the curve, I got great height that scared me a bit as I thought my tube would topple over. It’s also fun sliding down together, but for safety, please ask the lane attendants first if this is doable. We did just that in our subsequent slides — try all the slides to make your 2.5h snow tubing time worthwhile! We felt we were done tubing before 12pm as the first two lanes closed just before lunch, and we didn’t want to line up for too long in the other lanes.
  • Via Ferrata hike was amazing. Eli was a fun, knowledgeable tour guide. Definitely do the longer hike. 2 hours would have been too short.
