Getting to Eaton Mountain: We are at 89 Lambert Road just off Route 2. We are not on or off of Eaton Mountain Road. Set your GPS for "Eaton Mountain Ski Area". Entering "Eaton Mountain" on most systems will take you the wrong way and on a jeep trail to the summit of Eaton Mountain. Lambert Road does not go through to Oak Pond Road/Bowzer Lane, we can only be accessed from Route 2.
What to Wear: Dress appropriate for being outside for an hour or more. Wool socks, sturdy footwear, a good hat and multiple layers are highly recommended. You will have wind in your face coming down and it can get very cold once the sun goes behind the hill.
Tickets: We limit the number of attendees for our tubing sessions and therefore highly recommend making an advance reservation. We will use a credit card to hold your reservation. Tickets can be reserved by calling our lodge 207-474-2666. Messages left at this number will be returned. All participants must have a liability waiver (available in our lodge and also on the Rates and Hours page of this website). The waiver must be signed by a legal guardian for participants under 18 years of age.
Once You Arrive: Stop in at the lodge building ticket counter to get your tickets and turn in liability waivers.
I have my ticket now what?: At the start of your session time, walk tht tube hut by the covered bridge, select a snow tube and listen to the introductory directions from staff. Make sure cellphones, keys, and other loose items are secured.
Riding the Lift: Hand the ring on the snowtube leash to the lift attendant, sit on your tube, the attendant will hook the ring to the lift, and your ride to the top will begin. At the unload point (sign and attendant) roll off your tube. The attendant will hand you your tube's leash.
On the Slope: Wait for the go signal from the top hill attendant before starting down. Once at the bottom, take your tube and quickly clear the run out area. Get into the lift line for your next ride up.
