Zephyr Lodge Condo -- Area Information


Snow Tubing / Sledding

This information is compiled to assist guests who rent our Condo at the Zephyr Mountain Lodge.  If you've arrived at this page as a result of a web search on Tubing, we hope you benefit from the information.  And if you need lodging, thank you for considering us.

Most anyone who has lived in a winter climate has been exposed to the informal pastime of snow tubing or snow sledding.  If you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to give those sore ski legs a rest, try an afternoon of tubing.   Or you may find that youngsters -- from toddler to teenager -- who delight in skiing all day long seem to always find energy for an evening sledding excursion.  Ours always had that energy.

The Winter Park area has three several sledding alternatives and include a lift served option.   Two old time popular sledding locations on forest service land have been recently closed and are no longer available.  They are:
  -- Berthoud Pass:  Sledding used to be available at the top of Berthoud Pass 
  -- Water Board: The sledding hill just south of the Mary Jane turnoff is now closed 
Instead, choose the small sledding hill near the Zephyr, the sledding hill in downtown Winter Park, or the Fraser Tubing hill [fee charged and lift served].

Zephyr Mountain Lodge
Adjacent to the Discovery Center in the Plaza of the Zephyr Mountain Lodge is a small hill designed for adult supervised pre-teen tubers.  The popular fire pit is just a few steps away.  The spot is frequented after skiing and in the early evening hours.   There is no charge.  Bring your own tube.  Or ask the Zephyr front desk if they have any to loan.

Coke-Cola Tubing Hill at Winter Park Resort
For Reservations and Information 800-729-7907
New for the 2012-3 Ski season, Winter Park Resort added a professionally designed tubing hill complete with a lift to take you back to the top.  The hill is located adjacent to the Vintage Hotel right in the Winter Park Village.  Guests can ride the Cabriolet lift too and from their tubing adventure.

Winter Park Community Sledding and Tubing Hill
The town of Winter Park has groomed snow in their Hideaway Park community park.  The park is located near the chamber of commerce or roughly across the street from the McDonalds.  There is a large "big kid" hill and a smaller one for younger children near the picnic shelter.  There is no charge.  Bring your own tube as there are no services.   Credit for grooming goes to Grand Adventures [Snowmobile Provider].

Fraser Tubing Hill
The whole family can enjoy a snow tubing adventure.  After an exhilarating ride down more than 100 vertical feet, ride one of two specially designed lifts back to the start.  Take as many rides as you like.  Prices include rental of large inner tubes.

Open mid day until 10 PM.  Call for times and prices [currently closed on Mondays]

Located behind the Alco store across the street from Safeway.  From the Zephyr Lodge take US 40 north 6 miles to the town of Fraser.  Turn left at the traffic light.  Just after you pass under the railroad tracks and go up the hill, the Fraser tubing hill will be on your right.
