Tubing Hill 3 hours from El Paso


An El Paso winter is not like the winter in other parts of the United States. We don’t usually measure El Paso snowfall in feet. Usually, it looks more like “a blanket” or “dusting”.

Here, the snow is like the sexy period; you never know when you might get it or how long it will last.

Therefore, those looking to participate in recreational activities on the snow should hit the road and hit the slopes of New Mexico. But if skiing or snowboarding isn’t really your thing, you and your family can still have fun in the snow.

There is a place in Ruidoso that offers a snow game escape with tubes and zipline. It’s called Ruidoso Winter Park, and the wife and I used to take the boys there when they were kids. I can still imagine the alarmed look on their faces on their very first descent. It always makes me LOL.


What I love about Tube Hill is that you don’t have to waste the three hour block you paid for walking uphill after slipping. (No, I’m not lazy. I’m too lazy to be lazy. I’m effectively unproductive.)

Just get on one of the elevators and save your energy to hold onto the tube. They also have a protected area reserved for children who do not meet the height requirements for the steeper slopes.

Is food available or can I bring my own?

Yes and yes. According to the FAQ section, they sell pizzas, barbecues, drinks and snacks. Or “you are welcome to bring your own drinks and drinks”.

Igloo life

If you want to show your family that you are a real snowball player, you can hire an igloo for the day. It’s not really an igloo like the ice-cream one you see in movies and cartoons; more like a slanted soft-sided tent.

As per the website description, it includes unlimited snow tubes, zipline tickets, pizza, hot chocolates, and S’mores kits. It’s expensive but you’re screwed, remember?

What days can I go and play in the snow?

From Friday to Monday and the whole week of spring break in March.

How to get there

Ruidoso Winter Park is located in Alto, New Mexico on Lower Ski Run Road.
