If Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory were Banff National Park, the Golden Ticket would be your SkiBig3 Lift Ticket! It gives you access to all three ski resorts in Banff National Park, discounts at the best local eats, treats and activities, AND includes complimentary tubing at Mt. Norquay – home to the largest tube park in the Canadian Rockies!
The tubing experience is also available at the Lake Louise Ski Resort. For a small upgrade fee on your lift ticket, you can try it out for yourself!
Here’s what you need to know to make the most of this spinny, snowy experience.
First off – no experience is necessary. Whether you’re a kid or a kid-at-heart, this is a thrilling activity for visitors of all ages. Little ones do have to be over 42 inches tall to ride, and be accompanied by an adult.
What to wear
Avoid potential tube deflation or a painful collision by wearing warm winter boots, not ski or snowboard boots. Winter pants, jackets, and mitts just like you would wear to ski/snowboard are also great for tubing.
Tubing is a popular activity, and it can get busy at times. When there are more people than tubes, be so kind as to pass the tube at the line. This keeps things moving and gets you to your turn as quickly as possible.
