The longest snow tubing runs in New York state aren't at Hunter Mountain, where most think. They are actually in Upstate New York.

Despite many thinking Hunter Mountain has the longest runs at 1000 feet, Maple Ridge Snow Park in Lowville, New York, is actually home to 8 of the longest snow tubing lanes in the state at over 1200 feet. There's even a 100-foot vertical drop. You don't have to worry about walking back up the hill either. They have a magic carpet ride to pull you up.

Is Maple Ridge Open

Only real snow is used at Maple Ridge, creating a late start to the snow tubing season. Mother Nature dropped enough to open on Christmas Eve day.
