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.
