Press Release: Snow Tubing Coming to Harpers Ferry

River Riders Family Adventure Resort is in the works of adding snow tubing to their activity portfolio. Located in Harpers Ferry, WV; only 1 hour from Washington, DC, River Riders is building a new 14 lane snow tubing hill. A modern Magic Carpet Lift will transport guests back to the top of the lanes. The lanes will be around 900 feet long, the longest in the Mid-Atlantic, and guests will reach speeds of 30 MPH down the hill.

Snow tubing is an excellent, low cost, family friendly activity! No experience is necessary to slide down the hill on a tube.

Construction started along Alstadts Hill Road in Harpers Ferry, in October of 2022. River Riders is on target to be opening in January of 2023. Construction and excavating teams are working around the clock to meet the January 2023 deadline. River Riders is excited to bring some excitement this Winter.

“The process of adding snow tubing in Harpers Ferry has been years in the making. We want to bring guests to our resort year round and with the addition to snow tubing, that makes it all possible” says CEO, Matt Knott.

“We are anticipating a heavy interest from the surrounding 4 state region as it cuts the guest driving time in half for going to other snow tubing hills around the area. The buzz for snow tubing has been viral. Everyone is excited to have a winter activity right in their backyard in The Eastern Panhandle,” said Knott.

Ongoing and continuous updates of the construction can be found on their Facebook Page: Facebook.com/RiverRiders or on their Instagram: @RiverRiders

A solidified grand opening date will come closer toward the holidays.
