Frequently Asked Questions


Click on each heading for answers to Canyon Summer Tubing Frequently Asked Questions

What is Summer Tubing at Canyon Like?

Located on the same amazing hill as our winter tubing, the summer tubing has two lanes of fun on Neveplast runs! Neveplast, which is made in Italy, and was created and patented in 1998, is the very first synthetic material certified with the same slipperiness as real snow. Since then the company has produced artificial ski slopes able to replicate the feeling of skiing, snowboarding and tubing on a layer of compact snow.

Our runs are 453 feet in length – the largest of its kind in Western Canada!

How do you get to the top?

You ride an uphill conveyor lift known as a ‘Magic Carpet’ which brings you and your tube to the top of the hill. No hiking is required!

Is there anywhere for me to store my bags?

Please leave all belongings and valuables in your vehicle.


  • It is recommended that you wear clothing and shoes you do not mind getting a little dirty. The tubes are cleaned regularly but will get dusty and dirty from use.

How do I get to the Summer Tubing at Canyon?

The Summer Tubing Park is located at the upper lodge at Canyon Ski Resort, in Red Deer Alberta.

When you arrive at Canyon Ski Resort’s main gate, you will see signage instructing you to take the immediate left fork toward the parking lot. You do not drive down the hill. There is no public access on the lower road leading to the main lodge as it is a privately rented event hall. There is no public river access.

Who can ride on the Summer Tubes?

Riders must be at least 4 years or older to participate in summer tubing and must be able to carry their own tube or have a parent carry both tubes. To ensure the safety of all riders, we do not allow multiple passengers or children riding on laps. Only one person per tube is permitted.

Sandals, flip flops, or any other open-toe shoes are not permitted. Closed-toed shoes are required. Hats are not recommended as they can fly off.

When is the Summer Tubing open?

Projected Opening Day for the Summer Tube Park is Saturday June 22 2024.

You can see a full calendar of our hours over at www.canyonski.ca/hours

We expect mornings to be quieter than afternoons, so visit early and plan to make a day of it exploring our beautiful sights and eats!

How to buy tickets for the Summer Tubing?

You will have to pick a date when purchasing Summer Tubing tickets. Your tickets are only available on this date. Unused tickets will not be transferred to another date unless Tube Park is to be closed due to inclement weather. 

Your tubing rides will be valid until the end of the day – use them all at once or spread them out and make it an all-day activity! But be sure to arrive with ample time to use all your rides before the days end. 

With beautiful views, and delicious food and beverage options consider making a day of it out on our patio this summer!

Walk-ups may be purchased at the Upper Village Lodge, though we may sell out on busy days/times.

To avoid disappointment, pre-purchase your tickets ahead online.

An account will be required to complete your purchase, but each rider does not need to be registered for. Example: one person can purchase a set of 4 tickets for their family without having to register all 4 family members.

After parking you will walk to the Upper Village area and check-in at the Ticket Window. If you have not pre-purchased your tickets online there may be a chance to purchase a walk-up ticket (depending on availability).

Upon checking in, you will receive your tubing pass. Tickets are transferrable and must be treated like cash, as lost cards are able to redeemed by anyone that may find it.

What about bad weather?

Canyon Ski Resort prioritizes the safety of both our staff and guests during adverse weather conditions. The following policies detail our procedures in various situations:

The Summer Tube Slide can operate during light rain. Should heavy rain be forecasted, Canyon Ski Resort may decide to delay opening or suspend operations for part or all of the day. If heavy rainfall begins during operational hours, management will suspend activities until conditions improve. If the inclement weather persists, management may decide to offer rain checks to guests.

Thunderstorms pose serious hazards and demand immediate action. Our team will closely monitor weather reports and local conditions during storms or severe weather alerts. If conditions are deemed unsafe for any activities, an announcement will instruct all staff and guests to seek shelter in the lodge. It is imperative that tubing slide operations cease immediately upon hearing thunder, seeing lightning, or receiving severe weather warnings in close proximity.

After the last lightning sighting or thunderclap, Canyon Ski Resort will wait for a minimum of 30 minutes before resuming outdoor activities.

In the event of an extreme heat advisory issued by the local weather network, management will assess the situation on a case-by-case basis to determine whether closure is necessary.

While we strongly urge compliance with safety procedures during severe weather events, individuals are ultimately responsible for their actions. Leaving the premises during severe weather is at one’s own risk, and Canyon Ski Resort cannot be held liable for any consequences arising from ones personal actions.

If Canyon has to close because of extreme weather, all online purchases will be contacted via email and their purchase will be credited on file for a future rebook. These credits do not expire and you will receive a confirmation email showing the credits on file. To rebook, please reply to this email with a new date and time. All walk-up ticket holders must stop by our Guest Services Office prior to departing or save their tickets for proof of transaction.
