The longest snow tubing runs in New York are only an hour away from Utica.

Despite many thinking Hunter Mountain has the longest runs at 1000 feet, Maple Ridge Snow Park in Lowville, New York, is actually home to the longest snow tubing lanes in the state at over 1200 feet. And there's even a 100-foot vertical drop.

You don't have to worry about walking back up the hill either. They have tows to pull you up while enjoying the spectacular views of the Black River Valley and the Adirondacks.
