Winter Sports and Activities

West Mountain has their own state-of-the-art snowmaking machines to provide skiing, snowboarding and tubing almost every day of the winter season. There are trails for all abilities and experiences, ranging from least difficult, moderately difficult, to expert.

The Tubing Park is located next to the face of the mountain, with a “magic carpet” to get you to the top! There are four upper lanes and six lower lanes for tubing. You can choose a single or double tube - either race your friends down the lanes or join together for more fun!

Summer Fun
