Updated January 2, 2018

You can always find snow at Snow Trails located in Mansfield, Ohio. It’s a great destination to visit over winter break or anytime in the winter with family as you can find a variety of things to do from skiing to tubing and more. My family and I took a day trip to visit Snow Trails had a blast. Check out what fun you can have with these activities!

No worries about waiting in long lines as there are 7 lanes to go down. You can race your family or connect the tubes to go down together (I highly recommend that as you go faster). With the longest tubing lanes in Ohio at a length of 1,100′ inches, you can laugh all the way down to the end. Tubes are provided and there is no experience necessary!

Glow Tubing
Glow Your Way Down the Tubing Park Lanes with an Array of LED Lights Illuminating the Snow Tubing Park. There are five full weekends of this night time fun. Dates are JANUARY 5TH- 7TH, JANUARY 19TH- 21ST, FEBRUARY 2ND- 4TH, FEBRUARY 9TH- 11TH and MARCH 2ND- 4TH. Tickets go on sale 6 days in advance and may sell out quickly so be sure to get your tickets.

There are plenty of hills do go down from the bunny hill to the steep slopes. With it being so spacious you will not find it over crowded. I am a newbie to skiing so I spent most of my time on the bunny hill learning but did not feel uncomfortable as there were lots of newbies. They also offer private lessons if needed.

Snowboarding is allowed on the ski slopes as well and can be quite interesting to watch as we did outside of the restaurant window. You can find the expert snowboarders doing flips and trips as they ride down the slopes. My son was a newbie at snowboarding and did pretty well for his first time and made it one hill past the bunny hill. My husband is somewhat an expert at snowboarding and love the different options of hills to choose from to go down.

Children’s Programs
Snow Trails offers ski and snowboard programs for kids ages 4-9 for the day. It runs through Sunday, March 4th 2018. The programs offer fun challenges of trying new things, and mastering new skills.

Seasonal Club Pass
A day trip is all you need to get all the activities in but there are benefits to becoming a seasonal club member such as unlimited, any-day slope access, unlimited snow tubing, rentals, ski checks and more. It’s definitely worth it to get the perks especially if you’re an adventures type.
