This is embarassing but I've never been. So I have a few questions.

Is it even possible to rent?
Where do you buy snow tubes if you can't rent??
Any great location recommendations?

I noticed park city has a little area with snow tubes for $20 a person/day - would rather not do this unless there's no other options.

Thanks so much, I'm looking forward to going, just gotta figure out how to get the tube and get there haha

Gorgoza Park in Park City at the Jeremy Ranch exit-South side of the road-has a huge tubing park. I am pretty sure it is more than 20 per day, more like 20 per hour. It is part of PCMR and has a a tow rope to get you up the hill, the tubes, warming hut etc. I have done it several times and it is a blast.
Soldier Hollow up in Midway/Heber area is also a fun place to head over to.
Free is Sugar House park area...

It's been about 2 yrs since I've been, but I believe Gorgoza is about $20 for 2 hours...which is about how long it takes to go up 6-8 times...after 2 hours is when we all need a break anyway. Totallly worth $$.

You can go to Old Main Hill at USU. It's free, just bring a tube

get a disc instead-way faster. Most of the grocery stores should still have them in stock-since we have had no snow..

I think you can typically get tubes at tire stores right? Like Big-O tires or similar types of places.

what area are you in?

mountain dell golf course is our family's traditional sledding area. it is jam packed, but free (though parking is always difficult). it has a few really long runs too; fun to go down, long to hike back up.

renting, i don't know. purchasing? it has been a while, but i seem to remember just buying them at an auto body shop when i was a teenager in slc (back in the 90s).

lately, we haven't used tubes so much, and the ones we have used i stole from my parents' place (the ones we bought when i was a teenager). we use little sleds and stuff now.
