This was our first try at snow tubing with our 6 year old son. Jonas Ridge has 6 different lanes. They have a great hay hill for you to land on. They have kind of like a leash to pull the tubes which makes it easier for all ages. They have a conveyor belt to get you and the tube... More

We decided to try Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing after going to one of the local ski resorts, parking in the middle of nowhere, waiting for a bus, walking half a mile, waiting in line for an hour ... only to find out their tubing park was full. Grrr. So we made the short drive to Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing and... More

This is definitely fun for all ages. After reading the other reviews let me add: they now have a debit/credit machine which makes things easier! Saturday's are their busiest day because that's when all the large church and family groups want to come. If you have a large group, call ahead and try a Friday night or Sunday! The staff... More

I have visited a number of tubing venues here in NC however this is the first on I visited that is dedicated to snow tubing. We arrived on one of the busiest days of the season being that I was the first freeze after a very warm December as well as a holiday weekend. Considering all that the venue was... More

We brought our youth group from Florida to Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing. They were the only folks who would take a reservation for a group, every other company i spoke to said I could pre-pay but they still couldn't guarantee my group a spot. Chelsea was very helpful and when i spoke to the owner on the day of our... More

This is the best place in NC for snow tubing! The staff is very friendly and they have a cute cabin you can warm up in, with hot chocolate and snacks for sale. Clean indoor bathrooms. There are several ramp to slide down and the "magic carpet" hauls you back up to the top again. The on-staff photographer takes pics... More

This place was about as close to our cabin in Linville as Sugar Mountain. We were there over a holiday weekend and had been to sugar mountain to ski the day before and it was PACKED. We decided to try out Jonas Ridge. It may be smaller but in our opinion, perfect for our kids. We had 5 kids 8... More

Family fun with tubing and the pictures taken were good, however, we ordered pictures on website, credit card charged but never received pictures. After several emails and phone calls, I've yet to hear from anyone about this issue. Were there on 2/14, ordered pictures after viewing online on 2/16/15 and never received them. This is very disappointing and now when... More

Take into account this was a Saturday Peak Season visit. If you go on some day in the middle of the week (assuming they're open then) and/or off-season, then you're experience will likely be much, much different. Pros: - you'll be supporting a local, family venture vs. a corporate conglomerate with overseas offices - good, winter family fun - the... More

We went on a Saturday morning, I would recommend getting there early if you are going on the weekend! Even though there were a LOT of people there, the wait time for the snow tubes lanes were never more than a minute. There is NOT a dressing room, just two bathrooms, so be prepared. My 3-year old loved it! There... More
