If you are already up on the hill, check in at Adventure Point at the top of Dercum Mountain 15 minutes prior to your reservation.

Snow Tubing: A Beginners Guide
The Origins of Snow Tubing
Snow tubing is rumored to have originated back in the 1820’s in the Alpine Mountains. And what do you think made the people of the 1820’s want to slide down a slope covered in snow? It’s fun! And it still is because the basics of this winter activity are why it remains such a great winter activity for all to this day. That being family-friendly fun in the mountains. And Keystone Resort’s Snow Tubing at Adventure Point has all three!
Snow Tubing Improved
Perched at the top of Keystone Resort is Adventure Point, a massive tubing hill that is designed to be fun for all ages. It’s just like when you were a kid, only a much bigger hill with its own tubing lift, which you can enjoy both during the day and under the lights at night. With a unique state-of-the-art conveyor lift, the amount of rides is up to you! So if you want to get the most of your time there, pack a lunch and bring all of your friends so you can tube the whole day!
Dressing For Fun and Function
Now that we’ve covered the finer details, let’s talk about attire. Like spending any afternoon outside on the slopes, it is important to protect yourself from the elements. At the most basic level we’re talking boots, snow pants, snow jacket, and a beanie. If you want to play it safe, bring all of the above plus some warm socks, a solid base layer, and some goggles to protect your eyes. If you come prepared, you are setting yourself up for a really great day of Snow Tubing at Adventure Point!
