At Snoqualmie Pass, playing in the snow means more than skiing or snowboarding.
You can also barrel down the slopes on giant inner tubes.
The Summit at Snoqualmie resort has 12 groomed tubing lanes, each about as long as a football field, with a tow line that quickly runs you back to the top so you can spend more time taking rides down.
The lanes are available in two-hour sessions from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $20 to $22 for ages 13 and older, $18 to $20 for ages 6 to 12, and $5 for ages 5 and younger.
There's no age limit, and small kids can double up or ride with an adult.
The tubing center is at 2183 Highway 906 at Snoqualmie Pass. Take I-90 east to exit 53 and turn right onto Yellowstone Trail Road, then left on Highway 906.
