Snowtubing is the name of this unusual way of having fun in the snow in the child-friendly ski resort of Saas-Almagell and whizzing around on these rubber tyres is suitable for the whole family. The snowtubing run is situated in the middle of the ski area, where a lift carries you comfortably up to the start, before you descend at great speed to the finish line, where the ride comes to an end slowly and safely.
