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 $5/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 right at the chute.

The Jack Williams Toboggan Chute is closed to the public Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 9 & 10, for the 29th annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships. Visit the Toboggan Championships page to register teams and for more information, including the full schedule. Weather permitting, the chute will be open to the public and registered racers Friday, Feb. 8, for practice runs and public rides. Cost is $5/person; registered racers practice for free.
