Green Acres has been a family owned snow tubing business since 1974. We have a Family Hill for all ages and a Big Hill which does not open until mid January. Our hills are groomed with no individual lanes and snow tubes all end up in a common run out area at various speeds. Enjoy the ride back up the hill by the use of tow ropes. Tubers must be a minimum height of 42 inches or taller to tube alone. If tubing down a snow covered hill isn't for you, relax in our chalet and enjoy some hot chocolate, pizza or a hot dog from our concessions. Sorry, no food is allowed to be brought in to the chalet.

Accepted forms of payment are: Cash, Discover,Visa and Mastercard. No personal checks. There is no ATM at our facility, please plan accordingly. We are located 20 minutes from the Twin Cities metro area just off of Highway 36 between North St. Paul and Stillwater in the city of Lake Elmo, Minnesota. Visit our FAQ's page for other common questions.

Snow Tubing Release of Liability Waiver (Click here to Print Release Waiver)
Green Acres requires everyone that participates in snow tubing to read and sign a waiver. Tickets are purchased in person prior to desired session. Waivers are required, print out in advance or complete in person to exchange for your tickets. One waiver is needed for each participant snow tubing and it must be signed by the participant (or parent/guardian if under 18).

What do I need to bring or do?

  • We provide the tubes, no sleds, or tubes other than the tubes supplied by Green Acres are allowed.
  • Waiver forms for every participant must be signed in order to purchase a ticket.
  • Snow tubing takes place in a winter environment; Dress yourself and/or child in warm clothing, preferably waterproof. Winter footwear is recommended. (You may not wear ski boots.)
  • Every winter sport participant shares responsibility for his or her safety. Helmets are not required, participants are more than welcome to use one. Green Acres does not have helments for rental.
  • We encourage you to read through our rules/saftey tab prior to tubing.
Green Acres encourages you to educate yourself and know the benefits and limitations of helmets. A helmet designed for Recreational Snow Sports use may help reduce the risk of some types of injuries to the user at slower speeds and serious injury or death can result from both low and high energy impacts, even when a helmet is worn. Helmets are HIGHLY recommended for everyone for all activities. Green Acres does not have helments for rental.For more information on helmets visit the Lids on Kids website.
