Colorado Snow Tubing In Fraser Colorado!

Colorado Snow TubingIf you’re a enthusiastic tuber, than visiting the Colorado snow tubing areas is just the beginning of some Colorado Winter Fun. Colorado is well known for its skiing and winter wonderland fun. What most visitors to Colorado don’t know is that Colorado snow tubing is becoming a very popular sport. One of my favorite places to tube is the Colorado Adventure Park. It was formerly known as Fraser Hill Park.

The Fraser Hill has been around for a hundred years. The little town of Fraser and the Fraser Hill are located north of the Winter Park Ski Resort. Over the years the hill has changed but now you can be whisked back up the hill using a state of the art “Magic Carpet Lift”. Long gone are the days of having to climb back up after coming down.

Colorado Adventure Park is a popular place for Colorado snow tubing. Most of the Colorado Snow Tubing Areas look the same, that is until your start to make your way down. Once your descent has begun, your speed increases and you are in for a thrill seeking ride, Colorado winter fun style.

Wow! Does that look intense or what?

It’s no wonder snow tubing is a popular sport in Colorado.

Colorado Snow TubingTo reach the Colorado Adventure Park Area from Denver take I-70 west to exit 232 onto Highway 40.

Highway 40 will take you over Berthoud pass and then down into the town of Winter Park. From there stay on Hwy 40 until you come to the town of Fraser. At the stoplight in Fraser, turn left onto CR 72. Once you reach the railroad underpass, stay left as the tubing hill is on the right side at the top of the hill.

Typically Colorado snow tubing starts after Thanksgiving depending on the snow conditions. The Adventure Park tubing hill is open 7 days a week from 10am to 10pm. Tubing under the lights is awesome plus you can enjoy the warming hut to take the chill out.

Tubing rates usually run $18 per hour for a single tube and $32 per hour for a double tube. Not bad for a couple of hours of extreme fun with your family and friends.

Growing up in Colorado, I remember when we use to visit the Winter Park Area to ski. We always headed over to the Fraser Hill to get in a few hours of tubing. In those days they didn’t have a tow rope to haul you back up the 1/4 mile hill. It didn’t matter to us, we were young and full of energy. Even after a full day of skiing.

Tubing is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. Believe me when I tell you, your kids will love it when you take them out for a thrilling downhill ride. Don’t miss your chance at Colorado snow tubing next time your in Fraser!
