Tubing is a fun and super-trendy leisure activity for young and old, which has been popular for years.
Sunkid is on hand to help you with every aspect of tubing:
Tubing on snow is a wintertime activity that is similar to sledding. The rider on the tube is sliding down on a special Tubing slope. The tube can spin in all directions. A great Fun for young and old. At the same time, Tubing is a good alternative to skiing, a really good attraction on the snow for people who doesn't ski or snowboard. This fun activity can be enjoyed for just a couple hours during the day or evening (on a lighted run).
Snow Tubing parks as a meeting place for the entire family
Thanks to low temperatures in the winter, many regions all over the world have enough snow to offer conditions for winter sports despite relatively low altitudes. Due to the lack of mountains, traditional Nordic skiing in all its types is counted among the national sports in these regions. In the last few years though, a relatively new type of sport has established itself. Snow Tubing in specially landscaped parks. After all, rolling slopes are the ideal terrain for this particular sport. As a positive example of how a snow tubing park can be well-positioned, we present one of the largest snow tubing facilities in Europe.
Design & Planning
There are no limits in design of a Snowtubing Parc. But the safety of the riders has to be the most important factor every time. There are three different types of slopes:
Mantainance and preparation
The average gradient should be between 12 % and 25 %. The finish area has to be designed depending on the type of the slopes. A flat and long runout gives snowtubers the best and safest way to decelerate. The more complex the terrain and the slope is, the less technical aids are applicable. Therefore snow groomers are helpful for straight wavy slopes, on flat terrains. On slopes with more curves excavators are popular aids, but frequently this slopes need manual work.
Taking care for the whole snowtubing parc is the most important factor for perfect function and maximum safety. That means, that the sidewalls and the track have to be maintained, the tubes have to be controlled, the riders have to be instructed etc. Another crucial point for the design and the mantainance of the Tubing slope, are the changing wheater conditions. Depending on the temperature, the snow conditions, and other similar conditions, the same Tubing slope has other characteristics and can be faster or slower. The consideration of the factors is a must in the view of safety.
The ascending aid has to work in a comfortable and straightforwarding way. This is, why Sunkid Wondercarpets are the best choise for it. A Sunkid Wondercarpet is more efficent than a Snowtubing Lift, because of the following reasons:
Visual design, Sound, Customer Care, Snowtube rental
As written above a good mantained Snowtubing slope is a prerequisite. But also additional services can be very important: The visual design of the slope, an effective snowtube rental, the customer care and instruction, and of course other mood creating elements (like sound or illumination at night)
