Sledding Hills for Snow Days

alice sledding

If the plow gods have graced your street, enjoy! 

Since beginning this blog I have hoarded lists of hills recommended by other local parents. I have only launched my children and myself down a couple of them. I would just like to say that I accept NO LIABILITY for any injuries incurred. I do know that none of the hills listed dump children out into oncoming traffic. Sled at your own risk, supervise the kiddies, mind the icy roads, and stay safe today!
