With winter in full swing around the state, some may be wondering how and where they can enjoy the greatest snow on earth. Although, the weather can be quite cold in February, the crisp snow is prime for sledding and tubing. For all the adrenaline junkies out there that need an escape from their house, here are a few of the best spots for tubing in Southern Utah.
Brian Head Resort
Brian Heard resort offers two pristine snow tubing hills located in the mountains of Southern Utah. These mountains run specifically for snow tubing, and are a very popular winter activity at the resort. It’s a great place for a family with all different ages to spend a good time together. Some of the most fun to be had in Brian Head is located on these very hills.
Giant Steps and Navajo Mountains
Giant Steps – is a tubing hill with a 100 foot vertical drop and is 600 feet long. Burn Rubber is the name of this snow tubing park and for good reason. They describe the 6 lane park as a frozen waterslide that shoots you down the mountain like a bullet.
Navajo Mountains – is a tubing hill with a 75 foot drop and is 550 feet long. Tubing sessions last for an hour and a half.
Tubing at Brian Head is priced at $18. This provides an hour and a half session on either hillside and tubes to ride. There is also a lift where you are able to sit in the tube and allow it to pull you up the hill. The 6 lanes offered at Giant Steps off plenty of action for racing and fun for everyone.
Giant Steps is open every day of the week while Navajo Mountains tubing hills are open only on the weekends. For more information please visit Brian Head Snow Tubing.
