Join in the festive fun this season at our very exciting snow tube with Santa event at Craigavon Golf & Ski centre, providing excellent fun, Snowtubing is one of our most popular activities.

From years 3 to 12, enjoy the exhilaration of Snowtubing during the most wonderful time of the year.
The alpine lodge café will be serving all your festive favourites from mince pies to mulled wine. You can bring your own camera to record the experience.

Not only is Snowtubing great fun it’s also keeping your children fit and healthy by constantly moving about on the slope and the best part is they won’t even realise its exercise due to the amount of fun they’ll be having, plus it’ll help them to fall asleep at night dreaming of Santa Claus.
