New Hampshire ski resorts offer snow tubing hills & funWe recall years ago sneaking cafeteria trays out of the lodge to use as makeshift sleds. They were small, fast, and risky. Today we can all enjoy safe snow tubing. It’s a blast for families and kids (note that many tubing hills require a minimum age and minimum height of 2 to 3 feet for a person to go tubing). Many areas are adding lifts to replace the uphill walk. Many tubing hills do not manufacture snow, so tubing can be weather-dependent. A useful resource on snow tubing in New Hampshire is Ski NH
