  • The new nighttime, after-dark Sonic Tubing will feature music and disco lighting. Blue Mountain is the largest snowtubing park in the country, with 46 lanes, each more than 1,000 feet long. The tubing park offers three lifts. Tubers can choose between a single or double tube.
  • An enhanced automation of the snowmaking system includes new snowmaking guns and LED lighting, making night skiing available on the 40th With this addition, Blue Mountain now boasts one of the largest snowmaking systems in the country.
