Yes, our Snocat operators professionally groom up to 18 sledding/tubing runs daily, snowpack permitting.

Can I bring my own equipment?

Yes, when it comes to equipment, we give you the choice – buy, rent, or bring. You can purchase or rent sleds and tubes from us, or you can bring your own to use.  For safety reasons, metal and/or wooden sleds and snow bikes are not allowed.

What equipment do you rent?

We rent heavy duty tubes, plastic sleds, and helmets.  We also sell sleds in our retail store.

When does your season start?

It varies from year to year based on snowfall.  We are dependent on natural snow.  We are typically open by the first week of December.

We have designated hike up lanes for you to walk up to the top of the sledding runs.

What should I wear for sledding?

We recommend snow bibs/pants, snow jacket, waterproof gloves, snow boots, and a helmet.  We have these items for sale in the Adventure Mountain Sports Store.

Do you make snow?

Adventure Mountain is uniquely located along the Pacific crest at an elevation of 7,400 feet, and typically receives plenty of natural snow throughout the winter.

Can I bring my dog?

Trained service animals are always welcome throughout the resort.  Due to reasons of safety and hygiene associated with playing in and on the snow at our people park, beginning January 2019 we can no longer allow dogs, other than service animals, at Adventure Mountain.  As partners in recreation with the USFS, we are not permitted as a dog park, and we thank you for understanding us working to keep Adventure Mountains’ snow content as safe and biohazard free as possible for you and your children.

Can I bring my own food?

We have just recently put in a new outdoor patio with picnic tables for those bringing their own food to Adventure Mountain.

Can I bring a barbecue grill?

Due to Covid 19 safety protocols for social distancing, we are not allowing bbq grills at Adventure Mountain this season.

We do not allow snowboarding or skiing at our sledding, tubing, and snow play resort.
