There is nothing like a snowy day to inspire us to grab our sleds and hit the hills!  Below is a list of places to go sledding that are generally safe and free of latent dangers.  But do remember,  there are no guarantees as snow can hide rocks and other potential hazards.  It is always smart to take precautions even when visiting hills that are known to be safe choices.  Avoid standing on sleds and always sit feet-first.  Make sure areas are well-lit and don’t sled at night when it’s difficult to see obstacles.  Find areas that flatten out at the bottom to provide ample stopping time and stay away from hills that end near the street in order to avoid traffic.  

Do you have a favorite and safe sledding spot?  Let us know so we can add it to our list!
