Boreal’s New Tubing Park is equipped with a New Moving Carpet, groomed tubing lanes, and quality tubes, Playland is a place where the whole family can enjoy the snow. Located at the far end of Boreal’s parking lot.  
Tubers must be 42” tall to access our moving carpet and tube lanes - for those little guests smaller than 42", can enjoy the tubing area just for younger kids. called Mini-Tubes

I took my two daughters to Boreal on 2/20/2011 for some snow tubing.  We arrived around noon.  We stood in line for over 20 minutes to sign a waver and pay for tickets.  Because my daughters are both under 42 inches tall, they qualified for mini-tubers, which were $15 each.  I was not going to be tubing, just helping them, but I had to pay $5 just to stand there and supervise my children.  Once we got our tickets, we had to stand in line for another 20 minutes to get tubes.  The way it works is that you get your tube, go down the hill, turn in your tube, and get in line for another 20 minutes to get a tube again.  There is a moving sidewalk that gets you to the top of the hill.  Once you get to the top, you have to quickly exit and climb up some icy steps.  There is then a traffic jam at the top.  There is no way my three and six year old could have done this themselves.  Once I sent them down, I had to run to the bottom to help them off the runs.  After an hour and a half, my kids had gone down the hill twice.  The signs also advertised a snow play area, which turned out to just be a big pile of snow that was pretty hard packed.  

Next time, I'm just going to buy two sleds and find a snow park.
