Snowplay FAQs

Where can I slide on Mt Seymour?
Sliding is only permitted on designated toboggan slopes during regular hours of operation.  There are two slopes to chose from, both accessed from Parking Lot 2.   All sliders (tobogganers) must have a valid pass.  For information on location and passes, please click on maps and hours.

Why can’t I slide anywhere I want? Mt Seymour is a provincial park right?
For your safety and the safety of others, sliding (tobogganing) is only permitted on the two designated toboggan slopes.  The toboggan slopes are located in the Control Recreation Area, operated by Mt Seymour Resorts.

Where can I slide outside of the privately controlled recreation area?
Sliding (tobogganing) is discouraged outside of the Controlled Recreation Area for your safety.  If you are knowledgeable and have the appropriate outdoor  equipment, there are designated backcountry trails located outside the Controlled Recreation Area.  Please see our the map.

Can I take just one run down to see if I like it?No, we require everyone to slide with a valid pass. All participants must have a valid pass to slide (toboggan).  Please visit (Tobogganing Tubing Area) for more information

How can I purchase a pass?
Passes must be purchased in advance before you visit the mountain and picked up at the Enquist Lodge, located in Parking Lot 2. 

What is the difference between Tubing and Tobogganing?
Tobogganing requires you to bring your own sliding device or purchase one form the Enquist Lodge (inflatables not permitted).  Toboggan slopes are divided into lanes for you to slide down on and once you’ve reached the bottom, using the designated walking paths, you hike to the top with your toboggan.

Snow Tubing includes a custom tube that we provide, and like the toboggan area, there are several lanes to chose from.  Once you reach the bottom, a surface lift will bring you, in your tube, back to the top.

Can I rent toboggans?
Unfortunately, we don’t rent toboggans, however you can purchase toboggans (Sliding Carpets) at the Enquist Lodge..  

What kind of sliding devices can I use?
Most manufactured sleds, saucers and toboggans are permitted. We cannot permit devices that require standing or sitting upright such as snow bikes, custom made devices with metal edges or as said before, inflatables.  We must reserve the right to refuse the use of devices if they appear unsafe.

Why can’t I use an inflatable for Tobogganing?
Inflatables are deemed unsafe in the toboggan area and inappropriate for the length of slope provided.

Are there any age restrictions for Tubing and Tobogganing?
There aren’t any age restrictions in the toboggan area.  There is a height requirement for the Snow Tubing Area; 122 cm or 4 ft.

Can I wear ski boots on the tube or toboggan slopes?
We are not able to permit you to use your ski boots while Snow Tubing or Tobogganing.   Ski Boots in the Snow Tube and Toboggan Area do not provide appropriate grip on packed snow surfaces and are slippery and often cause injury.
