Flat Iron Mesa Park
Locals flock to the beautiful Flat Iron Mesa Park in Sandy, Utah when the snow starts. The 3.18 acres of sparkling landscape attract walkers and joggers, but most of all, snow tubers.
The park’s name came from the large, flat area above a steep hill that happens to be perfect for sledding. The slope allows you to pick up some speed before safely slowing to a stop in the spacious field below.
If you aren’t quite ready for a fast run (or don’t want to climb all the way to the top again) the end of the hill at Flat Iron Mesa Park has some easier, smaller slopes.

Tips for Snow Tubing in Utah
- Dress warm and waterproof. Nothing ends a snow day quicker than frozen fingers and toes.
- If the snow is fresh, wear goggles or sunglasses. The tubes sometimes send snow flying into your face while rushing down the hillside.
- To avoid crowds at snow tubing parks, always aim for weekdays. Not only will you be able to get in more runs, slower days are cheaper at some resorts.
- When snow tubing at a local park, make sure the area is clear of hazards, including people, before starting down the hill. You need a big enough flat area at the bottom to slow down after your run. Once you stop, quickly move out of the way so you don’t get run down. Also, consider wearing a helmet. Once you get going fast it is hard to stop.
