Whether it's during the day as the sun shines brightly, or after dark amid laser light displays and live music, there’s something magical about sledding and tubing down snow-covered slopes in Minnesota. Here are some of the state's best options for seizing the season broken down by region.
Sledding and tubing for many children in Minnesota is almost a rite of passage, but there is some risk involved anytime someone takes a ride down a hill. That goes for people riding plastic sleds or saucers, rubber tubes or wooden toboggans. Following are some tips from Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota to ensure sledding and tubing is done as safely as possible:
Adults should accompany children on sledding adventures–and ride down the hill with kids who are under 5 years old.
Wear a helmet to prevent against head injury and avoid items such as scarves that can get wrapped around objects. Wear waterproof clothing, and pack extra along if you plan to stay out for an extended period of time.
Pick hills that don’t have fences, streets, trees and water nearby. Ensure there’s a flat area at the bottom to stop.
