Snow Tubing for the Family – Best Twin Cities Hills

Sure the temperatures could go subzero at any time and sure we can barely move in all our layers, but we’re Minnesotans. We love all kinds of weather! Let’s get busy snow tubing on Twin Cities hills!

Many of these hills require pre-registration this year and are selling out fast, we recommend checking ahead before heading out. Updated 12/31/20.
