Additional Dinner Plain activities and facilities

Snow Tubing
FREE TUBE PARK SESSION when you purchae any Dinner Plain Snowpark Lift or Lesson Pass

Sliding on snow is the most fun you can have with a tube! Tube Park session vaild for the same day as lift pass

Launch yourself down one of two tubing lanes and the tow will pull all the tubes plus you back up to the top again. The tube lanes are elevated to an easy gradient which gather speed for a fun and exhilerating ride to the bottom where a ramp pulls you to a nice and easy stop. It's not too steep but not too slow. Tubing is easy and safe for kids from 4 years old and 100cms tall to ride by themselves.  Tubing is open daily in Winter and Wednesday Saturday evenings under lights.

There is now a NEW snow play area in Dinner Plain at Scrubbers End near the Cobungra Platter. Car parking is available adjacent to the park. The snow play area is open daily during the Winter season.
