Seven Oaks offers 120 snow tubes that make a great family or group outing for all ages (age 4 and older). Our snow tubing hill has 4 chutes that are perfect for the entire family to race down together. We are outfitted with a surface lift so you can sit back, enjoy the ride and let us do the lifting. “The Lodge at Seven Oaks” provides ample seating with a great view of the slopes, fast food, hot drinks, gourmet coffee, and Coal Creek Lounge.

With plenty of activities fit for the whole family, including skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing, we will see YOU on the slopes!

My boys and I went tubing tonight at Seven Oaks. ALL the employees we encountered were very pleasant and helpful! The gal that checked us in explained things really well. A ski patrol person chatted with my son on his way inside.The helpers hooking us to the tow line were great. The guys at the top were awesome at pushing and spinning my boys to go down…which they LOVED!! An employee even thanked us for coming after our last run down the hill. The boys enjoyed sitting by the fire. We got hot chocolates and mini doughnuts on our way out and the ladies there were wonderful with their suggestions on flavors. The three of us had an absolute blast so we will definitely be back again!!! Once again…EVERYONE WAS AMAZING!! ~ from Facebook
