Planning Your Trip to Hawksnest
As one of the premier winter activities in Western North Carolina and the surrounding region, we strongly recommend making advanced reservations for snow tubing here at Hawksnest. The winter is a busy season for our area so we also recommend visitors make advanced travel plans and lodging arrangements.
Tips for Traveling to Hawksnest
Hawksnest Snow Tubing Park is located in Watauga and Avery County and accessible by NC Highway 105. Please check road conditions before traveling to ensure safe travel by calling the resort.
Arrive in Advance
We recommend arriving 15-30 minutes before your snow tubing session begins. This will allow for time to get parked, checked-in, and use the restroom before your session begins.
Dressing appropriately for tubing is a necessity for safety and comfort!
We recommend warm, well-insulated layers with a waterproof outer layer. Winter hats, gloves, and boots are a must! Waterproof footwear is best, as your shoes and feet are likely to be wet and cold without them.
Please note, that while we do have a variety of winter hats, gloves, and snow pants for sale in our gift shop, all sizes are not guaranteed. We do not have any winter footwear for sale and no longer offer snow bib rentals due to COVID-19 precautions.
