If you like sledding, you’ll love snow tubing! Ride a moving sidewalk up a 10-story hill and then soar back down on a specially designed inner tube. Once you get to the bottom, do it all over again! At Elm Creek in Maple Grove, all of the tubing lanes are designed for safety and fun. All you need are warm winter clothes—Three Rivers supplies the rest.
