Ready to hit the hills for some winter fun? Here are a few dozen spots in the area that are popular for sledding. Who is ready to try them out?

When sledding, safety always comes first, so remember these basic safety tips:

  • Look for obstacles that could make the area unsafe, such as ponds, fences, jumps, bumps, icy patches, etc.
  • Wear a winter sports helmet, especially for kids 12 and under.  A bike helmet at the very least.
  • The safest sleds have breaks and can be steered.
  • Dress warmly and do not wear scarfs, or any clothing, that could get caught in the sled.
  • Children 5 and under should ride with an adult.
  • Always ride facing forward. Never face-first, and never standing.
  • Teach your children to roll off and get away from their sled if they find that they can’t stop their sled.
  • Only 1 Child per sled. Only 1 Child should go down the hill at once.
  • Keep arms and legs inside the sled.
