Sledding Safety Tips


Use Safe Gear 

  • Pick a sled that has brakes and can be steered. 
  • Wear a helmet (whether winter or bike helmet) while sledding.
  • Wear a hat, gloves or mittens, snow pants, winter jacket, and snow boots. Make sure scarves are tucked into coats so they don't get caught under the sled.

 

Be Safe While Sledding

  • Young kids (5 and under) should sled with an adult, and kids under 12 should be watched at all times.
  • Everyone should sit face-forward on their sleds with their feet downhill. 
  • Everyone should go down the hill one at a time and with only one person per sled (except for adults with young kids).
  • Walk up the side of the hill and leave the middle open for other sledders.
  • Don't ever pull a sled with a moving vehicle (like a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle).
  • It is best to sled during the day. For sledding at night, make sure the path is well lit.
