I remember waiting all year long for a good snowfall so that I could slide down the hill with my dad’s old spare tire tube. I never cared how rustic my “toy” might look. I would have chosen my tube over any sled at any time. Tubing and sledding are fun family activities that provide thrills for all ages. If you haven’t been able to jump into the snow yet and enjoy the winter, don’t worry. You are still in time to bring back that childhood memory and enjoy the snow, just like back in “the day”.
Here is a list of some of the most popular places in Colorado to enjoy snow packed hills and challenge your sledding skills.
- Golden Gate Canyon State Park, offers sled riders the possibility to enjoy a ride down the large open hill southwest of the Visitor Center or on the slope above Kriley Pond.
- Roxborough State Park allows visitors to ride down the trails, and Cherry Creek State Park welcomes sledding and snow tubing when there are good snow levels.
- Mueller State Park offers ample opportunities for tubing and sled riding, with more than 50 miles of trails on a 5,000-acre playground.
- Sylvan Lake State Park receives an abundance of snow during the winter, with snowy hills to entertain visitors for months. There are several slopes at State Forest State Park that are perfect for sledding, amid the stunning winter scenery.
- On the Western Slope, Ridgway State Park has a sledding hill in the upper boat ramp parking lot, along with other opportunities throughout the park. The hills at Vega State Park also make for an enjoyable afternoon of racing your friends to the bottom.
