Getting outside in the winter and sledding down a hill at high speeds is an activity that never gets old. No matter how many times you do it or where you do it. Snow tubing or dog sledding is a fantastic family activity that you should take advantage of in Vermont during the winter. The Norwich Inn is near some big hills and a do sledding attraction making it the perfect place to strap on your boots and snow pants and get out there for snow tubing in Vermont. Here are some nearby locations that are sure to put a smile on your children’s faces.
This is an incredibly fun and public ski hill. The Dartmouth Skiway is the closest ski and tubing hill to The Norwich Inn. It offers more than 100 skiable acres of land with a good mix of slopes for beginners, intermediate, and expert skill levels.
Great River Outfitters
If you are looking for something a bit different than downhill sledding, you should get behind a pack of Siberian huskies on a sled. Great River Outfitters create an unforgettable experience for you and your family. It offers 90- and 30-minute rides through the Vermont wilderness. Great River Outfitters take pride in providing a personal and educational experience for its guests.
There’s no better winter activity to do than ice skating. If tubing and sledding isn’t your thing when it comes to winter, then head over to Occom Pond. It’s a popular activity for Dartmouth students and the public. It’s near the campus and it is large enough for you to skate or set up a game of hockey.
A dedicated tubing park in Ascutney Outdoors is an absolute blast. Ticket packets cost $10 (tube included), and it’s good for six rides up the lift. The snow tubing hill is groomed ahead of time, and the lift stretches 500 feet to bring you back to the top. There are some restrictions, so read before you leave. You must rent the tubes when you arrive, and the tubing hill stays open into the night.
Mount Tom Sledding Hill
Here is a free option for you, granted you’ve brought your sled. The Mt. Tom Sledding hill in Vermont makes for an excellent place for younger children or someone who has never been snow tubing before. The hill has a 500-foot slope.
