Tubing In New Mexico
On the mountain, “family fun” and “snow tubing” go hand-in-hand. Jumping into a tube and sliding yourself downhill is a perfect activity to cap off a day filled with alpine adventures. It’s also a wonderful way for all ages to dip a toe of any skill level into snowsports. Whether you’re making lifelong memories or looking for an activity the whole family can enjoy, here are our three favorite can’t-miss tubing hills around New Mexico.
RUIDOSO WINTER PARK
Day Tubing, 10 a.m – 5 p.m. Most Days | $36.50 per person for 3 hours
Twilight Tubing, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. Most Days | $26.50 per person
Ruidoso Winter Park is perfect for serious “tubers” wanting a little adventure. Ruidoso is committed to “the best tubing experience possible” and great conditions are always available due to their impressive snow-making system. Put that fresh powder to good use and choose your own tubing adventure: book a three-hour adventure starting as early as 10 a.m. or end your day “twilight tubing” from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
RED RIVER SKI AREA
Open Most Days, Timeslots Based on Availability. | $28 per person
Red River Ski Area has trails for every skill level, plus something else for everyone: tubing.

ANGEL FIRE RESORT

Race your friends and family down Angel Fire’s thrilling two-lane tubing hill. Some skiers treat snow tubing as an end to their day on the mountain. Angel Fire Resort is the only place in New Mexico where you can start with tubing and end your day with the resort’s famous night skiing.
