The Jack Williams Toboggan Chute will open Saturday Jan. 23! It will be open Saturdays and Sundays as long as there is adequate ice in the chute and on Hosmer Pond. Check the ski report on the front page of the website for updates.
The cost is $10 per person per hour. If you show up with cash you can go straight to the chute (bear left in the parking lot, toward the pond). For credit card transactions please go to the ticket bump-out on the base lodge deck.
The toboggan chute is a handmade wooden trough, flooded with ice, with an outrun onto Hosmer Pond. Ice conditions must be safe to open the chute, so if you are planning a trip it is wise to call first to see if it is operating. The chute is typically open to the public on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is also open during school vacation week in February. Cost is $10/person/hour, toboggans provided. Children must be at least 42 inches tall to ride down the chute. Tickets are available in the Ticket/Rental Office next to the lodge – IF YOU ARE PAYING CASH YOU MAY GO DIRECTLY TO THE SHOOT TO BUY YOUR TICKETS. When you enter the Snow Bowl access road, stay left after you pass the main parking lot on your right. You can park next to the chute.
The Jack Williams Toboggan Chute is closed to the public Saturday and Sunday during the second weekend in February for the annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships (2021 CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE CANCELED DUE TO COVID). Visit the Toboggan Championships page for more details, including the full schedule and team registration information.
