Why is there a snow tube on this website??
The Story: It is January 16th, the day before my son’s eleventh birthday. I decide that a sledding party would be perfect for a bunch of rambunctious boys. After a nice birthday cake, we can send them all outside to work off the sugar-high. There is good snow coverage, and our house sits on top of a decent hill. I rummage around in the attic to find a snow tube and find three, all deflated from punctures (casualties of the last year’s winter fun). I patch them up and buy three more.
The next day, the kids arrive…the snow tubes are all inflated and waiting. Everyone piles outside after cake, ready for fun. In less than two hours all six snow tubes are deflated…WHAT?!?…I cant believe this!! I hate these cheap snow tubes!
And then it hits me…I make vacuum bags! -tough, industrial grade, virtually indestructible vacuum bags. A 30mil polyurethane snow tube…yes! That’s the ticket!
So I designed the tube, and I had three of them made, and wow, have they held up! Year after year of use and abuse and they have stayed fully inflated. I instructed my kids to purposely run them into branches and rocks, and here we are 13 years later and the tubes are still inflated.
So this winter we introduce the “Tough Rider” Polyurethane Snow Tube.
