Snow Tubing!

Powder Ridge Park has invested in the only snow-making machine in Connecticut that can make snow no matter what the temperature is outside! We’re not waiting for Mother Nature to bring snow to the Snow Tubing area, and we will be offering tubing starting in early December.

Your Snow Tubing admission includes a 45-minute tubing session. You must pre-purchase your time slot in advance and online.

Arrive before, or stay after your tubing session to enjoy the activities during our Lifted Spirits event. There is an additional admission fee to the festival and it is included in your ticket.
