Tubing is as much a winter tradition as snowballs, snowmen, and Santa Claus. Northstar has taken it a step farther by removing that pesky uphill piece of the equation. Starting just above the gondola at mid-mountain tubers are rope-towed up the hill before speeding downhill one at a time or chained together in groups. The tube masters at Northstar have even built in turns and whoop-dee-dos to add a little more excitement to the mix. Finally, because we all hate waiting in line, Northstar limits the number of tubing tickets it sells every hour to ensure that everyone on the hill can tube to their heart’s delight without being bombarded by long lines and crowds. It’s a safe and exhilarating experience for all.
