Nashoba Valley Ski Area harnesses its mountainside snow blankets to create one of the largest tubing parks in New England. Tubers ages 6 and older can ride one of the facility’s four lifts to the top of the slopes before saddling one-person tubes or vacationing dolphins and gliding down 18 different snow-packed runs. An experienced grooming fleet tends to the frozen inclines to preserve ideal tubing conditions for speed-hungry families and friends. Boasting a TV and a full-service bar, the park’s lodge and snack center grants snow-coasting voyagers a warming respite from nimbly tubing down the slopes or lassoing stray tubes.
Though Nashoba Valley Ski Area sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Nashoba Valley Snow Tube Park
When Nashoba Valley Ski Area opened in 1964, its lack of modern equipment meant that most of the time guests just had to hope for a good snowfall. In the decades since, however, the resort has gained mastery over the winter landscape. Snow-blowers spray their glittery clouds onto 17 trails ranging from beginner to expert, where skiers and snowboarders carve around sharp turns, navigate shaded glades, and look for fresh tracks left by wild Thoreaus. Four high-speed lifts run from the lodge and restaurant to the top of these slopes, and provide easy access to the mountain's two terrain parks. Suited to riders of varying experience levels, both parks encourage air-catching with features such as large boxes and rails. Recognizing that not all visitors enjoy strapping boards to their feet, Nashoba Valley Ski offers another kind of winter-time fun: a tubing park spread across 18 grooved lanes and serviced by four tow lifts.
