Safety

How should I dress?


Dress accordingly for the weather, like any other winter activity. We suggest dressing in layers, having proper footwear, hat to cover ears and warm gloves. (Knit mittens do not work too well on the tow ropes.)




Can more than one person ride in a tube?


We only allow one person per tube.




Do I need a helmet?


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.




Are there any height requirements?


All participants must be at least 42 inches tall. Only one person per tube is allowed. All tubers must be able to ride up on a tube up the hill and tube down the hill by themselves.
