We cannot predict our season opening date. We need several days of below-freezing temperatures (preferably 28 degrees or colder) to make snow and have it stick to the hill. Once we start making snow, we will update the Website and Facebook pages.
Again, this is a weather type of situation. When it is below freezing, snow is packed, lanes are fast. After natural snowfall from mother nature, the lanes will become very slow. When it is 45 degrees in the middle of the day with the sun out, the lanes will slow down a lot. You will most likely get stuck going down. We can see conditions change almost instantly based on how many people are riding the hills and what the weather is at that moment in time! You may call or come and check out the hill conditions prior to purchase. We do not give refunds for conditions that are out of our control.
Our Outdoor Miner's Pub Restaurant is open in our pavilion. There is an additional snack bar located in the Tubing Shop Lobby for grab & go items.
Children must be at least 40” tall to ride the large hill. There is a separate kids hill available that has 4 lanes. This is perfect for younger children who want to ease into the experience. We recommend that kids are at least age 4 to go tubing. We do not allow children to ride with adults. Adults are not allowed to ride on the kids hill.
We have two tow lifts that will pull you and your tube up to the top of the hill.
You are encouraged to wear good, outdoor clothing. Warm boots, a warm coat, hat, and gloves are suggested. Snow pants are highly recommended if you will be spending the day.
Free parking is available right next to the tubing hill and clubhouse.
Only tubes provided by Iron Valley Tubing are allowed on the slope.
Most days there should be a minimal wait if any. It is typically 10 - 12 minutes between runs. This includes the ride down the hill, the ride back up on our lift, and the walk back to the top of the hill. There are certain days during the season that are busier than others. With our Reservation system now implemented, you should be able to get up to 10 runs in during your time with us.
