The Best Warren County Sledding and Tubing Spots
There is finally enough snow on the ground to bundle up the kids and hit some of our region’s slopes! Here, we look at the best sledding and tubing spots in Warren County:
Chestertown — Dynamite Hill Recreation Area
The skiing in Chestertown is dynamite! Dynamite Hill, that is. The four-season, 133-acre recreation area is one of our region’s premier winter destinations. Worried about lugging your tube uphill? Never fear; the facility has a tow rope to pull you up. There is also a warming hut to thaw out between runs and, best of all, there is no admission fee.
Glens Falls — Crandall Park
Looking for a tamer ride? The hill at Crandall Park just outside downtown Glens Falls might be more your speed. Crandall Park is a beautifully maintained park open year-round from dawn until dusk. Parking is free and available in the park, directly behind and beside the hill, as well as in a main lot just off Route 9/Glen Street..
Johnsburg — Gore Mountain North Creek Ski Bowl
Gore Mountain is a gorgeous family-friendly mountain in the heart of the Adirondacks. North Creek Ski Bowl is located at the base of Little Gore Mountain and has been Gore’s base camp since 1934.
The Little Gore Tubing Hill offers a unique experience as riders fly down an 800-foot shute. The hill has a handle tow lift and is lighted for nighttime riders. Children must be 36 inches or taller for lift-serviced tubing.
After tubing all day long, warm up at Ski Bowl Lodge with hot drinks and good food. Riding at the Bowl is available at no additional cost to all season pass holders, when passes are valid at Gore.
Lake George — Lake George Recreation Center
The hill at Lake George Recreation Center offers world-class views with major adrenaline rushes! There is no parking or admission fee. Only snow tubes are allowed; no plastic, wooden or metal sleds are permitted and, given the intensity of the hill, it is suggested only those 5 years of age or older to tube.
The Recreation Center is off Transfer Road. Follow signs for the tubing hill after turning off the main road. Park in the main parking lot or continue down the road toward the ball field and park in the lot on the right.
Queensbury — Gurney Lane Recreation Area and West Mountain
Gurney Lane Recreation Area offers more than 150 acres of fun! Ice skating, sledding and snowshoeing are all available, with equipment to borrow in the warming hut. Fat-tire bike trails are also available. Please check if the facility is open before you go, as the pandemic did cause past closures.
West Mountain is the perfect place for family-friendly tubing all winter long. The tubing park has multiple lanes accessible by a magic carpet-style lift. Simply hop on with your tube and let the magic carpet take you uphill. Two-hour tickets are available online and cost $22 for children ages 12 and younger, $32 for those ages 13 and older ($27 and $37 for holidays).. Children must be at least 4 years of age.
Stony Creek — Stony Creek Town Park
The hill at Stony Creek Town Park might be small, but you can still have big fun! Bring a tube or sled and ride to your heart’s content. The park is open from dawn until dusk with free parking.
Our region’s sloping hills and natural beauty make a day of fun creating family memories easy. . Visit Warren County to find your new favorite sledding spot!
