Jan 27 Let’s Glow Tubing at Night

Posted: 01/27/16

Big Bear Snow Play sheds a new light on inner tubing with its new installment of glow tubing for nighttime fun in the snow.

Big Bear Snow Play transforms white snow-covered hills into a rainbow of illuminated colors every Friday, Saturday and holiday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“This is the first time Big Bear Snow Play has ever offered tubing at night,” said Big Bear Snow Play Manager Scott Voigt. “Glow tubing adds another dimension to the fun!”

Big Bear Snow Play hills are lit up by eleven industrial-style strobe lights that constantly change colors throughout the night. The lights are comparable to stage lighting used for rock concerts. Also, the Magic Carpet lift lights up with more than 1,500 multi-colored LED fluorescent lights making the ride to the top of the hill a spectrum of color.

So far, Big Bear is off to a great season of natural snow. Also, Big Bear Snow Play has ski-resort quality snowmaking systems to ensure there is always snow for inner tube thrill seekers. At the time of this press release the park has a snow depth of up to 25 feet that is a combination of snow from recent El Niño storms and snowmaking. In addition to loads of snow, Big Bear Snow Play ensures optimum sliding conditions by grooming its runs daily. Families that seek to capture memories in the snow are in good hands because Big Bear Snow Play guarantees snow-covered hills for tubing through April.

Big Bear Snow Play provides two Magic Carpet uphill lifts, which are comprised of a large moving conveyor belt that transports riders to the top of snow-packed slopes, similar to an airport terminal people-mover. The purpose of Magic Carpet rides is to eliminate the stress of climbing the hill, which in turn provides opportunity for more downhill fun. For added comfort, Magic Carpet rides come equipped with a Plexiglass cover for those snowy, chilly days. Other features at the parks include a “kiddie area” for the youngest riders, and when it’s time for a winter warm-up, head to the heated base lodge for family-priced snack bar and video games.

Big Bear Snow Play is open daily for inner tubing from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. with glow tubing every Friday, Saturday and holiday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Passes including tube rental, Magic Carpet lift and unlimited tubing. Day sessions are $30 per person and glow tubing is $25 per person ages seven and up. Guests ages two to six are free with a paying adult (One-on-one supervision is required at all time). Guests can come and go as they please. Big Bear Snow Play is located at 42825 Big Bear Blvd. (three miles east of Big Bear Village, next to Motel 6). For more information call 909-585-0075 or visit
