Attention, winter sports enthusiasts! Now that we’ve covered some of the cheapest lift tickets you can find in the province, it’s time for a bit of fun. And there’s no winter activity better suited for all ages and abilities than tubing. Whether you want to start slow on some smaller hills or hold on for dear life – here are 8 great tubing & tobogganing options you’ll find in BC this winter.

Whistler Blackcomb

We’ll start with the crown jewel of the skiing world. Stretching over two mountains, and featuring state-of-the-art technology and every kind of terrain you can imagine, Whistler Blackcomb pretty much has it all. And if you’re looking to try out tubing or tobogganing for the first (or hundredth) time, this is a great spot to do it. Tickets to the Bubly Tube Park are priced at $28 for adults, $26 for teens, and $21.50 for children aged 7 to 12.

Where: 4545 Blackcomb Way, Whistler

Mount Seymour

In addition to their affordable 3Ski weekday and night passes, you can go tobogganing at Mount Seymour any day of the week between 10 and 4 pm. And from Wednesday to Sunday, you can go tubing between the same hours.

Participants at the Snow Tube Park must be 48″ or taller, and note that inflatable/custom-made sleds are not allowed at the Toboggan Park.
