When it’s snowing in Colorado Springs, kids and grownups put their snow gear on and head outside for some winter fun.  Really anything with a bit of incline is fun to slide down. If you prefer to have a destination in mind when taking off with your sledding crew, this list of unofficial sledding hills will help you find lots of fun – fast. No patience needed.

Tips for a successful sledding adventure:

  • Remember that our snow doesn’t last long in the strong Colorado sun, so it’s ideal to head out while the snow is still falling.
  • Keep a close eye on younger kids since popular sledding hills can get busy and it’s easy for little ones to get run over in the chaos.
  • Be beware of stumps and sticks sticking out of the ground.
  • Check over the sledding area before taking your first run to make sure it’s free from hazards.
