Having a nice sliding hill is one thing, but it can be a lot of work to carve out a path.
However, we realized that the neighbors had a walking path down the hill that they kept well shoveled. It happened to be a little icy too and was perfect for sledding!
It’s great because there is just enough snow & ice to cover the grass, yet we didn’t have to plow through anything. The sides are high enough to keep the sled from veering off the path and it was easy to walk up. Win Win.
