Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Snow Valley Snow Tubing in Barrie (Minesing)

Family Tested
High energy

Are you game?

The expanse of snow before us seemed abruptly severed horizontally. Beyond this divide, long corridors stretched out. As we walked right up to the edge, I discovered a slope which seemed to me equivalent to a 10-storey descent. My 6-year-old friends stamped their feet with impatience as they waited the attendant's signal. Not me! In a split second, I felt like I was on a free-falling 4-storey elevator ride. Then, I was showered with snow rushing from under my tube and my tube started revolving around itself. I gave my pint-size Olympic bobsledders a good show. They were ready for more. The first set of slopes was steeper but tubers could choose a second group of gentler trails located behind a row of trees. Minimum height to ride down the slopes is 42 inches. The great thing about Snow Valley Snow Tubing is that smaller kids have two options: the Chicken Chutes (without a lift, where parents and kids can form groups to slide down) and the Kidz Play Area, a 3-chute miniature tube park without a lift reserved for kids only (under 42 inches).
