Snow Tubing in Boone, Iowa



When will we open? Soon...we hope! 

Our snow making pumps have all been rebuilt, the snow making ponds are full and the snow machines are on the slopes ready for Mother Nature to give us some cold air.

It only takes a few days to get 1 to 2 runs open once we see temperatures in the teens. As we look at the forecast, we are shooting for December 5th....BUT it's completely up to Mother Nature.

As we get closer to opening day we wanted to remind you of a few COVID-19 related items:

At Seven Oaks we are committed to opening our slopes responsibly. While keeping our commitment to follow our Covid-19 Winter Guidelines, you should expect that there will be changes to our traditional way of operating. By following our Covid-19 Winter Guidelines, you will help us continue to be a great outlet for you, your family and your friends to get outside and have some fun!

We do expect to be busy and expect that there will be times that we reach our capacity both at our tubing park and the ski/ board slopes (season pass holders will still be allowed on the slopes even when we have temporarily stopped selling tickets). So, we are asking all of our customers to be patient and understanding as we get this figured out.

We will be making posts to our Facebook account to keep you updated when we are nearing capacity. Please follow us on Facebook to get the latest updates.

Our anticipated opening date for skiing and snowboarding will be either November 27th....stay tuned!
