Well, the ground is officially white... I don't think we can pretend to ignore the inevitable any longer, winter is coming! And with it, winter activities!

My kids are a bit young for the skiing, snowboarding, intertubing type stuff (3, 1, and 1) not to mention neither my wife or I are any good at that (how she grew up 20 miles from Red Lodge and never went skiing once still mystifies me!)... but sledding some place tame sounds fun! Are there any public type places in the SLC area (preferably down south as we're in South Jordan) or is it more pick a local hill and have at it?

Come to Daybreak, we have tons of great hills. There is a trail that runs through the middle (the glass info booth is on it), if there is a lot of snow it is a great hill. Check out the field at Daybreak elementary also, it has some nice hills.

Further north, there is a slope in Sugar House Park (I-80 and 1300 East) that is full of sledding kids when it's got snow on it. I've seen cardboard boxes and real sleds used there.

Go outside on a sunny Saturday morning after a snow storm and listen for that combination screaming/laughing sound. Then follow your ears. Children are born with internal navigation that will infallibly get them to a sledding hill (or a mud puddle). Now I'll get serious. Think of streets that are close to you that are steepest. Find a school, church, or park on that street and you'll find kids sledding.
But it's going to be really tough to beat Sugarhouse Park.

We've gone to the Riverton Golf Course before, There is a nice hill there. But we haven't been lately and I'm thinking it is because it was closed it to sledders the last time we tried. West Ridge Golf Course may have some good hills as well.

But if you want to make a longer day of it, try the Spruces area up Big Cottonwood Canyon.

How's the sledding up there? We're looking to take the kids out today or tomorrow before the snow melts again!

How do I get to the glass booth? I think I saw it when we went to look at a house or two up there but I don't see it on any of the Daybreak maps so figured I'd ask. Can you offer direction?
