Six Steps to Awesome Driveway Sledding!

Step 1 – Have lots of snow!

Step 2 – Pile all of your snow in the same spot to create a snow bank that is at least 4’-0” higher than the surrounding areas.  Don’t forget to shape the snow bank into a gradual ramp.

Step 3 – Have a long driveway on a hill where you can create bumpers for the kids, so they won’t end up in the “willy-wacks”!

Step 4 – Lose the battle with mother nature, resulting in a crusty mess of a driveway perfect for sledding.  (Don’t forget to teach the kids how to bail out, by the last red maple tree we tap on the right…)

Step 5 – Insert two young children with energy to burn, who are tired of being cooped up inside due to winter weather.

Step 6 – Have no fear and smile!

  1. Good, simple winter family fun that doesn’t require a charger is a good thing. 🙂

  2. That looks like so much fun! When I was a kid growing up in Arizona we had to drive to the mountains to see any snow. My great uncle made what we called ‘ski-boggins,’ by bending wood upward to form a curl like a wide ski and attaching a seat on it. We sat on those things and slid down the slopes.
