Best Sledding Locations

Best Sledding LocationsWhen sledding, it is important to have the proper location. There are a few very important factors that play a part in whether or not a particular place is truly a good place for sledding. Read on to learn what to look for in a sled area:

Clear Area—you want to be as safe as possible while sledding, so you want to make sure that there is nothing in the way for you to run into. Since you can’t always control your direction, especially children, you will want to make sure that almost all of the area is clear. You will want to avoid any slopes or hills that have such things as large rocks, trees, fences, etc. People can also act as an obstacle, possibly injuring them or the sledder, as well. This means it is best to not go on a hill that has too many people.

Safe Bottom—it is extremely important that you check out the bottom of a hill before riding it, especially if children will be sledding on it. Some hills may end up in a parking lot or a street, and this could be very dangerous for anyone on a sled. This becomes even more true the faster the sled is going.

Steepness—this is one of the most important factors when determining whether a spot is best for sledding or not. It needs to be fairly steep so that the sled can actually get going, but if it is too steep, the speed can increase to the point that the sled becomes out of control and the driver may have a hard time regaining it. So, you want your hill to be just right when it comes to how steep it is for sledding.

Snow Depth—it is very important that the hill you are thinking about using has good snow coverage. If you happen to sled down one that doesn’t, you may end up stopping abruptly on a dry area. This can lead to damage to the sled and injury to the driver if you are going fairly fast.

The above tips can help you find the best snow sledding spots, and they can help you keep safe while having winter fun. One of the best things to look for in a snow sled location is very few people. Be sure to check all other points out, as well, because some hills are avoided for a reason. But, if you can find a safe hill with few people, you can spend all day having a blast without worrying about other people.
