Every year when it snows we have people calling the station to find out where they should take the kids to sled. It’s even more important this year to expose a lot more since parents are not going to want their kids to be on crowded hills. That’s why I’ve decided to compile a list of a bunch of different hills in each county.

This way, if you get to one and it’s pretty crowded at least it’s a close driving distance to another. So if sledding is on your schedule this weekend here are some really good sledding hills in eight different counties. A lot of these have been suggested by listeners. Some of them are ones that I took my kids to when they were growing up, and others are where my kids are taking THEIR kids to sled.
