Littleton Offers Epic Winter Fun at New England’s Largest Snow Tubing Park
You don't have to be a skier or boarder to hit the slopes in Massachusetts. It turns out New England's largest snow tubing park is closer to the SouthCoast than most mountains – and yes, they are already open for the season and making their own snow.
Just about 90 minutes north of New Bedford is the Nashoba Valley Tubing Park in Littleton, Massachusetts that offers 18 lanes of tubing when the winter season peaks. That's 30 minutes closer than Wachusett Mountain, which doesn't even offer tubing, and double the tubing lanes available at Yawgoo Valley in Exeter, Rhode Island, which isn't up and running for the season yet.
So if now is the time you want to slip and slide down a mountain on an inflatable tube, then you really need to see this epic park in Littleton that seems totally worth the trip.
For $39, kids and adults alike can careen down groomed lanes of snow for two hours any day of the week. Nashoba Valley offers day and night tubing too, so an after school or after work slide is also an option.
You do have to be at least six years old or 42 inches tall to slide, which means this is the first year my daughter is old enough to tube. Considering how much she loves to sled every winter, I think we are obviously going to have to make a trek to check this place out.
Luckily, they also have an on-site lodge with a snack bar, so after tubing hot chocolates to warm yourself up is an option, too. See why Nashoba Valley is the biggest snow tubing experience around.
