Left Florida looking for some cool winter fun and found Scaly Mountain tubing. These are die hard snow makers, making sure that there is snow tubing fun to be had even during a mild winter. The kids had so much fun, they must have gone up and down on the tubes 15 +/- times. Nothing better than playing in the... More

Since the slopes in sky valley have closed my visits there consist of golf, however I have been really missing the ski slope. Scaly mountain fill s the void. That is going to be a must do , every visit to sky valley. Winter or summer. Staff was so nice and everyone's works very hard to ensure a great time.... More

We have visited the Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center twice. It's fun for the kids and adults. There's tubing, a two-lane hill for all and a small hill for toddlers, and ice skating. They make their own snow so its open when other tubing places are closed. It's a great place to go even when the snow hasn't been falling. The... More

We had a great time at Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center. The manager was great. Since we went early on a weekday we were the first and only ones there. We rode constantly for an hour! I realize this is unusual and we were just lucky. Be prepared to be patient if it is busy but it is worth it. It... More

Loaded with folks from Florida looking for some snow fun, this is a nice place to snow tube. There are two lanes and the staff keep people moving so there were no delays during our visit. The tubing area was in nice shape - the runs were fast, but safe. If you don't want to join the snow tubing fun... More

Thank you for visiting us. We are glad you enjoyed our facilities. Sorry about the ice rink, but as you said, it has been rather warm and rainy. Come visit us in the spring/summer for dry tubing, trout fishing, and gem mining. More

We came from Florida looking for snow and we found it! Three girls screaming down the hill equals fun. Management was great and helpful. We would recommend to everyone.

This was our second time visiting here for snow tubing and the kids loved it. It isn't a huge facility, but is a lot of fun. Our first visit was two years ago and our daughter didn't meet the required height (42"), so she had to use the kiddie hill. The kiddie hill is nice to give smaller siblings an... More

I accompanied my nephew, his wife, and their triplets to skate at Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center. The trips had never skated and are just 6 years old, but they had a great time. After their 2 hours of skating, they loved their hot chocolate from the building where you pay to skate or snow tube. I didn't skate but took... More

We had a great time with a 9, 7 and 5 year old snow tubing at Scaly Mountain. Very friendly staff and very manageable crowd on the day that we attended.

Family activity - fun for all. Ice skating was an added attraction. Riding tubes down a snow covered hill provided great entertainment.
