Sledding safety tips

  • Sled on designated hills
  • Stay away from roads, rivers, railways and parking lots
  • Wear a helmet to reduce the risk of head injury
  • Prevent strangulation by wearing neck warmers instead of scarves and avoiding outer clothing with drawstrings
  • Only sled in the daylight or on well lit hills
  • Go down the hill sitting up or kneeling on the sled. Never slide down headfirst or standing up
  • Be sure your path is clear of obstacles and people all the way down the hill.
  • Stay in control of your sled. Avoid inner tubes and snow discs that are difficult to control
  • If you fall off or stop unexpectedly, quickly move out of the way of other sledders.
  • Walk back up the side of the hill, away from other sledders

In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
