Zipping down the mountain now has new meaning at Hawksnest. We have doubled the fun!

Recognized for having the largest Snow Tubing Park on the East Coast, we’ve added the longest Zip line Tour as well, featuring ten cables, two of which are known in the zip line industry as super or mega zips.

Gliding through the air with ease is trouble-free. Zippers--ages five and up--enjoy the exhilarations of speeding treetop high over valleys having expansive views and threading through the forest canopy over creeks, wild turkeys, deer, groundhogs and the occasional bear. In winter, zippers can yell to their snow tubing friends from way above as they begin their journey.

Our 20 Lane Snow Tubing Park has four different areas to snow tube; lanes are 400 – 1000 feet long. Our 2 conveyor lifts take our snow tubers back to the top for more rides. Hawksnest has 100% snow making and lighting on all lanes to provide the best possible conditions and fun for the whole family with nice hotels.

Also, don't forget to enjoy our Coffee Bar, Carolina BBQ, restaurant and Pizza close to the hotels, during and after your tubing and zipping sessions!
