Nice Tubing park - fun for school vacation week
Feb 2020
Friendly check in staff and a beautiful sunny day made for a fun few hours of tubing. We visited over MA school vacation week (family of 4) and the tubing area was moderately busy. Really small parking lot with a larger parking area over the bridge (closer to the road). Seemed to be plenty of tubes. A little backup at the top of the runs and no one monitoring the bottom, so much of the waiting was due to little kids just sitting at the end and not getting off the run. Fun for the smaller kids. Bigger kids might want a longer or steeper run. Nice little bar and deck area. Serves food too! All in all a fun trip.

This place is worth it
Feb 2020 • Family
This place is worth it! #1 there is a bar so you can hang out and drink and eat while the kids are tubing or skiing/snowboarding. The bartender, Olivia, was the nicest woman I have ever met.
Don’t click the link on the web site, just go!! The owner is very nice and safety conscious. My husband and daughter really enjoyed their time snow tubing. There is a simple lift for young kids. We were there on a holiday weekend and the place was never crazy crowded.
My family loved it so much we went back the next day for private ski lessons. The instructor, David, was amazing! My husband couldn’t recommend him more. First time trying skiing and by the end of the hour my daughter was hooked. The prices were extremely reasonable. I am so happy I found this place and can’t recommend it enough for a family that wants to try tubbing, skiing for the first time or if you want to send the kids off while you relax for a bit.

Great tubing!
Feb 2020
Took eight 14 year olds tubing. All staff were friendly and helpful and the kids had a great time. We would definitely go back. Fire to get warm inside and food/drinks upstairs. Reasonable prices.

Daughter went with friends to do haunted walk. Had a good time. They seem to be busy during snow season. They have tubing and skiing but never attended. Seems small and over crowded. But have never visited mtn..

Simplest of Fun Snow Tubing
Feb 2019 • Family
Snow tubing the simplest of ways. Nothing fancy, nothing exotic, just fun. Maybe 300 ft runs. Two hour sessions start anytime you show up. However at $25 a head, you realize within the first hour, if you have younger kids, they will run out of gas so cost vs value may be in question. No skiing since snow was limited at this location.

It didn't get crowded for our mid-week visit since schools in N.H. were still in session. The site has a 'people-mover' that helps you back up the hill which works well for the older folks. It's a single line up the hill so if it does get crowded, the lines could be long.

I'd caution parents of younger kids to be mindful this is a 'self-service' hill, meaning you can run into the possibility of a collision at the bottom of the three lane hill. They have a monitor at the top but no signal system as to when people could go. So it's visual site rules. If you have a helmet for your kid, bring it. Make sure you wear snow pants as you will be rolling in the snow.

Beutiful place to interact with wallabies and to admire the beautiful view. Being able to feed the wallabies by hand close and to give them a pat is amazing will be back for sure.

Disappointing Ski Afternoon
Feb 2018 • Family
We came on the Sunday before President's Day and arriving with our own equipment at 1:30 pm expected to be able to ski at least 2 hours (lift closes at 4pm, at least according to their website). However, the line was 40 minutes long just to buy a lift ticket! They had just one line going for both lift tickets and snacks with only one employee at the end trying to manage. Once we did get outside we noticed there were fewer trails open than what was advertised that morning on their website.
At the end we made it back to the lift at 3:53pm but it was closed already so we couldn't get a last run in. I don't ski that often but that doesn't seem right to close a lift 5 or 10 minutes early and I don't remember it happening anywhere else.
To top if off, some of the employees were not very polite and quite frankly seemed tired and overworked. The only upside is that it was inexpensive, but personally I would rather pay a little more for better service. It was a beautiful Sunday on a long weekend in mid February! Couldn't the management have predicted a busy day and put a few more staff on duty? We were hoping for a better experience.
