Sledding Hills Guide for Toledo & Surrounding Area


Flat! That’s the one word that best describes the terrain in NW Ohio & Southeast Michigan, which is totally fine unless it snows & kiddos want to go sledding. In which case kids have two options, one, gather all the neighborhood kids and have a BYOS (Bring Your Own Snow) party in the front yard, where kids literally gather as much snow from all the yards to make a snow hill, or, hit up a snow hill. But let’s be honest, if you’re not a local these hills are tough to find. So here’s a list of some popular snow hills the locals in NW Ohio & SE Michigan frequent with their kiddos…
