Tubing & Sledding

Tubing Fun at Val Bialas!!

The paid tubing hill is considered an amusement device by NY State.   As a result, there are specific requirments to get the certificate to open.    The lift going up, and the formation of lanes going down is required to be inspected.   Until  January 3, we had no snow to form lanes because of the rain.   By the time we got snow, we were into the weekend and the inspection couldnt be scheduled until the 7th or 8th.   Then it rained last night and the lanes melted out.   So we are back scrambling to get snow to form lanes again.    As always, we can still rent tubes for those who wish to walk up and slide down.

How it works:   The rules are simple, it is for 5 years and up, and at least 30″ in height.  There is ONE rider per opening.   That means ONE on a single and 2 on a double.  For Hours, see the PRICES AND HOURS AGE.   The cost is $8 per hour. 


Free Sledding is still here.   The handle tow lift is located on the east (left) side of the sledding hill.   Free sledding is allowed on the same hill.  Sledders without tickets can walk up the west (right) side of the sledding hill.   Free Sledders who sneak over to the tubing hill will have their sleds confisgated.

Free Sledding is allowed on the EAST slope (adjacent to Elm St) and on the WEST half of the tubing hill.  The hours are DAWN to DUSK.

    The tubing lift is for 5 years and up. If you have a toddler, you can rent a tube for $5 per hour, but you have to walk up.   You also have an option for one of our special DOUBLE tubes (like a 2 person bob sled).  That does cost more.
