5) Snow Tubing
Like sledding but with longer rides and no long climbs back up the hill, snow tubing is one of the fastest-growing winter recreational activities for families. The closest snow tubing park is Nashoba Valley and it happens to be the largest tubing park in New England. There are a total of 18 groomed lanes serviced by four ski lifts. There is also an on sight lodge with snacks and TV for warming up breaks. Tubers must be 42″ in height or 6 years old to participate. Only one person per tube unless conditions warrant group tubing. Don’t bring your own tubes since only Nashoba Valley tubes are allowed and no sleds. Nashoba Valley Tubing Park is located on 179 Great Road in Littleton. Hours for tubing are Monday – Friday from 1:00pm until 10:00pm, Saturday and Sunday 9:00am until 10:00pm.
All Tubing Participants are required to sign a release of liability agreement which are available on the Nashoba Valley website.
