Ride the Wave! Snowtubing is a downhill ride that runs on specially designed snow tubes.  The tubing hill is groomed in "chutes" that resemble various sizes of snow-built waves.  Each chute is unique in design (hills and valleys).
Imagine... Not having to wait until it snows to go out and enjoy it!  We have equipment that makes snow, so we'll have snow even if you don't!

About the Hill... State-of-the-art snowmaking equipment will keep the tubing hill covered, with or without natural snow.  The tubing hill terrain has several grades of elevation, with a downhill drop and a "serpentine" design built to thrill kids and adults alike, with an impressive 750 foot long ride.
What is the SPIN? The idea of the spin is to add heart-pounding excitement to the ride!  The hill staff spin your tube as you are "pushed over the edge" (smaller children would not get as fast of a spin as older kids and adults).  The spin and quick drop of snowtubing make the ride much more thrilling because it is fast and gives a sense of weightlessness.
What is Snowtubing? 
Snowtubing is completely different than sledding (where the ride is fairly smooth and straight down a gradual slope).  At PolarWave, snowtubers ride the tow to the top of the hill where they will "stage" at one of the several 750' snow chutes. 
Then What?
Once on your tube, the hill staff will give you a push (and a spin if you ask) over the edge of the hill.  And hang on! Your tube will hit the "drop" at the very beginning of the ride and propel you down the chute at "blow-your-hair-back" speeds over hills and valleys and bump your tube off the chute side walls, making the ride even more awesome.
That's why thousands of people snowtube at PolarWave
each and every season!
Imagine... Being able to tube downhill without the dread of walking back up to the top of the hill for another run!
