    Tubing - the art of sliding down a hill while riding on an inner tube was something that the kids enjoyed doing.

    This activity dates back to the 1940s when winter sports were beginning to be an accepted part of the Red River scene.

    In the 1960s, “Whirleybirds” were introduced to snow sport fans on Red River’s west side, beginning a tradition that lasted well into the 1990s.

    Today, the latest in tubing adventure can be had at the Red River Ski Area on new high-tech tubes that glide effortlessly down the beginners slope in front of the Chalet. Activity begins around 4 PM when the skiing is done for the day. Tickets can be purchased at the Guest Services office in the lower level of the Chalet.
