Bryce Resort Snow Tubing in Virginia Review 2023

Virginia Winter Activities

Bryce Resort Snow Tubing was so much fun with 800 feet of fun! Bryce Resort is only a 2-hour drive from Washington, D.C. in the Shenandoah Valley and was a wonderful day trip. It was our first snow tubing as a family, so we wanted to share everything we learned! Below the review, I list 5 other snow tubing in Virginia spots.

The Process of Snow Tubing in Bayse, Virginia:

  1. We signed up about a week beforehand on their website for a 90 minute session of snow tubing. Weekend spots sell out fast so make sure you get tickets asap.
  2. Ages: Snow tubing is only for ages 4 and up and 36 inches tall. Each kid and adult must be in their own tube. Kids cannot ride on your lap, they have to be in their own tube and thus must be tall enough to not fall out!
  3. When we arrived for our 1:30PM spot, the parking lot was FULL (lots of skiers and snowboarders!) and so we parked on the side of the street next to the small aircraft airport. It was only across the street and not far.
  4. You check in at the outdoor window for tubing and collect your snow tubing pass that you wear on your coat.
  5. Next we headed over to the snow tubing area and showed our pass to the staff who gave us a little safety talk.
  6. Finally we grabbed our tubes and walked up to the magic carpet to take us up!
  7. The hill doesn't look to high but the angle and the packed snow (aka ice!) made for a VERY fast start. (Of course I am not a fan of speed so take that with a grain of salt!) My 4 year old and 8 year old loved it but they did say it was SUPER fast!

Pros of Bryce Resort Snow Tubing:

  1. Close to DC! It was less than 2 hour drive from Fairfax County and exactly 2 hours (without traffic!) from downtown DC.
  2. Great social distancing activity because you are in your own tube, everyone wore masks at the snow tubing area and you are spaced apart in line by your tube!
  3. Save $5 with a combo Tubing and Ice Skating ticket. $10 to add on including rentals. Usually $15.
  4. You have a scheduled 90-minute session so you will have enough time to go down plenty of times! We found

Cons of Bryce Resort Tubing:
