Non-Ski Mountain Adventures In Winter Park

Year after year, Winter Park Resort has been named a top ski resort in North America, but we’ve also been recognized for our non-ski activities. Just this year, our Coca Cola® Tubing Hill was named one of the top five snow tubing parks in North America. You don’t have to ski or ride to enjoy the beautiful mountains and the outdoors in Winter Park. We have outdoor activities for both adrenaline enthusiasts and those who want to relax. Check out these non-ski mountain activities in Winter Park to make your winter vacation a memorable one. 


If you’re looking for mountain thrills for all ages, you’ve found ’em! Bring the whole crew for fun in the fast lane, incredible views, and sweet treats at the Coca Cola® Tubing Hill. New this year, we’re adding a whole new dimension to The Tubing Hill experience – nighttime Cosmic Tubing, complete with twinkle lights, crisp mountain air, and a little extra adrenaline. The Tubing Hill features individual lanes, banked curves, and a covered conveyor lift ride back to the top. End your time at the tubing hill with a cherry on top, or should we say marshmallow? Stop by Hill House for a gourmet hot chocolate and freshly-baked cookies! The Tubing Hill can sell out fast, so make sure to book your spot today!

Picture this: You’re strolling through a quiet, snow-covered, wintery forest, exploring unspoiled nature and soaking in the views of the surrounding mountains. Sounds magical right? Because it is! The Nature Snowshoe Tour is tailored toward the whole crew and is filled with views of snow-covered Rocky Mountains. The Summit Snowshoe Tour ventures off the beaten path as you traverse some high alpine terrain to explore the tree line and are rewarded with incredible views of the Fraser River Valley.  

You also have the opportunity to soak in the quiet and peaceful woods during twilight. Watch as the sun begins to set and the day becomes night. This is truly a great way to experience pure and unspoiled nature. After you return to the Gondola, head into Sunspot to enjoy a beverage by a warm fire. Book your snowshoe tours today!
