Screaming-good time!

Sledding is the definition of a screaming-good time. We've tracked down a handful of awesome sledding hills where you can go to enjoy the thrill of slipping and sliding your way down a snow-packed hill (weather permitting, of course). Speaking of which, we recommend always checking conditions and opening status before you go.

Many of these spots include a nearby indoor area for resting and warming up, but in any case be sure to dress warmly and bring a dry change of clothes for little ones. Adhesive hand and foot warmers (available at many stores) can be a great tool for keeping little fingers and toes toasty. We also recommend bringing along plenty of snacks and — for bonus points! — a thermos of hot cocoa.
