This Awesome New England Mountain Lets You Tube After Dark
Though it's not quite tubing weather yet, winter is coming New England's way and there are plenty of mountainside activities for everyone to enjoy.
Like night tubing with funky beats and flashing lights.
Yes, tubing after dark happens at several New England slopes, but we only found one that offers snow tubing at night surrounded by neon lights.
Powder Ridge Park in Middlefield, Connecticut, is a two-hour drive from the SouthCoast, but it seems totally worth it for an after-dark snow tube adventure.
Powder Ridge offers several nights throughout the season during which after-hours snow tubing and snowboarding can go down under the lights. And they are some seriously colorful lights.
Plus the music is going, the snowboard park is open and the hot cocoa is flowing all night, too.
It's certainly a road trip-worthy winter experience and believe it or not, this Connecticut park is much closer to the SouthCoast than many of the bigger Northern New England mountains.
Of course, Powder Ridge isn't the only mountain in New England offering snow tubing after dark.
Yawgoo Valley in Exeter, Rhode Island, has night tubing during their season. Nashoba Valley in Littleton, Massachusetts (the biggest snow tubing park in New England), has after-dark hours every night they're open. Butternut Tubing Center in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, stays open until 8 every night, too.
But in all of Southern New England, it appears only one park, Powder Ridge, lets you tube over color-changing lights.
