No Hunter Mountain Doesn’t Have Longest Snow Tubing Runs! They Are Upstate
The longest snow tubing runs in New York state aren't at Hunter Mountain, where most think. They are actually in Upstate New York.
Despite many thinking Hunter Mountain has the longest runs at 1000 feet, Maple Ridge Snow Park in Lowville, New York, is actually home to 8 of the longest snow tubing lanes in the state at over 1200 feet. There's even a 100-foot vertical drop. You don't have to worry about walking back up the hill either. They have a magic carpet ride to pull you up.
Is Maple Ridge Open
Only real snow is used at Maple Ridge, creating a late start to the snow tubing season. Mother Nature dropped enough to open on Christmas Eve day.
A few days later, the hills were bare on New Year's Day.
Fire up the lawnmower. We continue to wait.
Maple Ridge Tickets
Now that Mother Nature has finally cooperated, you can get tickets on the new online reservation system. Attendance on the hill will be limited to 75 people and everyone must use their own snow tube. Waiver forms must also be signed when you arrive.
