The best snow tube for adults

As a kid, snow tubing was my favorite outdoor activity in the winter, and as an adult it's still one of my favorite things to do. Check out my list of tubing and sledding spots in Newton.

The Yeti snow tube (found at Toys R Us and Amazon) is the largest snow tube I've ever had. As you can see, it's a double-rider for kids, but it's the perfect size for an adult. I'm 6'5" and I fit comfortably and safely. I picked up this 54-incher for under $20 and it's a great deal. Available in other sizes for kids, too.

Cruising down the sledding hill aboard this Yeti mobile is like being on a hovercraft. It's plump and comfy, and glides pretty smoothly. While you may not get the wild speed as you would from a plastic or wooden sled, you won't have to deal with bumps and a sore butt on the Yeti tube!

  • 48 in. inflated / 54 in. deflated

You should totally get some welovecolors socks for your fiance, she is guaranteed to love them! Actually, I've been wearing my nylon ones to the gym and they work great! By the way- fun post, I'm actually going tubing in the Poconos this weekend!
