Massachusetts Mountain Is One Of The Best For Snowtubing In The U.S.
Skiing, snowboarding, and ice skating get the majority of the winter activity attention. However, snowtubing may be the most fun of them all. USA Today‘s 10BEST recently detailed the best spots in America to go snowtubing and a Massachusetts mountain was named.
“Whether it’s your first time playing in the snow or you grew up on the mountain, you can enjoy a day of slipping and sliding at these ten places,” 10BEST explained. They also detail how cost-effective partaking in this thrilling activity is in comparison to many of the other winter sports. This is due to the fact that no bulking equipment is actually needed.
Snowtubing often falls into the category of a fallback plan. Perhaps you didn’t get to the ski mountain in time. Or you are just looking for something to do. It is essentially the mini golf of winter. However, like mini golf, once you are in the midst of the experience, you realize how incredibly fun it is. Furthermore, if you really want complete snowtubing exhilaration, try zipping down at night under a lit-up trail.
The Massachusetts mountain that was recognized for having the best snowtubing offers special Friday night rides.

At Butternut there’s even an 10-lane snowtubing course. “We now offer hundreds of tubes, up to 10 tubing lanes and a Magic Carpet Lift that makes getting back to the top of the Tubing hill easy,” Butternut states. Their hills here are covered in freshly made snow to ensure the proper ride.
Each rider is required to tube on their own. In addition, as a group, you can pursue a private session when the space is available. The price for tubing at Butternut is either $25 or $35, depending upon what day and time you go.
It is also worth noting that two other New England area mountains made 10BEST’s snowtubing list. Cranmore Mountain in North Conway, New Hampshire, ranked #5. Then, King Pine Mountain in Madison, New Hampshire, ranked #6.
