Sledding hills all over Minnesota offer snow sledding thrills and winter outdoor activities.

There are sledding hills in all parts of the state that offer gentle downhill sliding that even young children can enjoy.

If you are into the thrills and spills of extreme sledding there are lots of sledding runs to accommodate you as well.

Some Suggestions About Where to Go Snow Sledding

Minnesota state parks can be great places to go for a sledding outing. Frontenac State Park (just a short drive from the Twin Cities) has a warming shelter near the sledding area. Lots of other state parks all over Minnesota have wonderful sliding hills.

Some of the best snow sledding in Minnesota can be found right in the Twin Cities. Many ski areas offer tubing hills for exciting downhill fun. Buck Hill in Burnsville is one of the ski areas that includes tubing hills in addition to skiing and snowboarding facilities.
