Area Sledding Hills

Do you remember the feeling of anticipation as you sat, bundled, at the top of the hill, looking at the slope falling away in front of you? A deep breath for courage. A quick push. And you were flying. Racing down the hill, slipping, tumbling, in a flurry of snow. Then came the red-cheeked charge back to the top to take another wintry run down the sledding hill.

Sledding is a wonderful, free, calorie burning, memory making winter day pastime. Our list below shares many places in the area to introduce your children sledding magic. If you know of a great sledding hill that isn’t on our list, please share it with us by sending an email to [email protected]. Please indicate your name, city and daytime phone number. We will add it to our list!

Happy Sledding!
