Dinner Plain Snow Park Activities


Tubing is the best fun and is available at Dinner Plain Snow Park every day in winter (snow dependent). Launch yourself down one of two tubing lanes and the two will pull all the tubes back up to the top again.

The tube lanes are elevated to an easy gradient which gather speed for a fun and exhilerating ride to the bottom where a ramp pulls you to a nice and easy stop. It's not too steep but not too slow. Tubing is easy and safe for kids from 5 years old to ride by themselves. Smaller kids can have just as much fun riding with an adult. Tubing is open daily in Winter and Wednesday and Saturday evenings under lights.


Thanks to bright light towers at Dinner Plain Snow Park, you and the family can continue skiing or snowboarding under the stars Wednesdays and Saturdays in peak season
