The Tenth Day of Christmas

sledding

One more favorite thing to do with snow would be sledding or tabogganing depending on what kind of sled you are using. I lived on the top of a sloped street with an even steeper hill a block away. It was great fun and something we could do for hours or until we were numb from cold. I'm not into skiing though I wouldn't mind trying some day. The closest I came to anything ski-related was standing on the top of the ski slope of Sugarloaf in the Pennsylvania Poconos. I had climbed up the back side of the mountain and watched the skiers come off the chair lift. That was my thing back then - climbing or hiking.

Sledding is good! Skiing, not so much.

I agree. Sledding has you closer to the ground and a bit slower speed (sometimes) and it takes very little skill.

Never been a huge fan, but I love to watch others do it

Love sledding! there's just no slopes here, so if you didn't have anyone to pull the sled, you wouldn't be going anywhere!

Never seen the fun in skiing, although we went skating whenever we could.

I'd say that sledding there is a companion sport. No, going off on your own.

I love ice skating too. Learned how to skate on a frozen pond.

Sledding on 'Suicide Hill' (that's just what we kids called it because you could go REALLY fast and if you didn't fall off, you could sometimes go clear across the road - good thing it wasn't a busy road! lol). I'm sure a lot of us kids wore the look of fear that kid is wearing. lol

I remember a hill like that. It ended in a friend's driveway. I'm thinking they wondered from time to time why they bought the house at the bottom of the hill.
