Weeeeeeee! WCKC’s Guide to Worcester Area Sledding Spots!
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.
