When there’s snow in the forecast, you know it’s prime time for snowball fights, snow angels, sledding and ice skating. Playing in the snow is fun for the whole family. For more adventurous families, racing down snow-packed mountains is at the top of the list of snow-centric activities. One of the most fun ways to race downhill in the winter? Snow tubing. There are plenty of spots for snow tubing in New York at family-friendly ski resorts in the area. Snow tubing is one of the best winter activities for kids, and can be a part of an epic winter weekend getaway. Snow tubing will get the adrenaline pumping as the kids (safely) fly through the wintry air. If you’re looking for something a little more easy going, head to a nearby hill in one of the city’s best parks for a fun day of sledding. Of course the best way to wrap up a snowy excursion is to indulge in a warm mug of hot chocolate.
