What better way to soak up the winter snowfall than heading to the closest hill to go sledding? After talking to families across the Black Hills, here are some of our favorites.
Pageant Hill:Pageant Hill Dr.
Known as a top spot in all of the Black Hills, this hill is a popular location for family sledding with children of all ages.
Hanna Campground: (just beyond Cheyenne Crossing)
Hanna Road and Hanna Campground are nestled in the Black Hills National Forest and great for families with kids of all ages. The campground is a great starter location for young children, and along the way, you will surely find more extreme slopes to sled down.
Black Hills State University: (behind the Young Center)
With a bowl-shaped field, these steep hills are short but great for older children.
Tri-State Museum:415 5th Ave.
With a variety behind the Tri-State Museum, older children will love the speed they get heading downhill. Be careful! There is a walking path at the bottom.
Lions Club Park:500 Block Lazelle St.
These rolling hills are perfect for little ones wanting to try sledding on their own.
Strong Field Hill: Ballpark Rd.
If your older kids are looking for a challenge, check out Strong Field Hill! These steep, long hills are tons of fun.
Southern Hills Golf Course:1130 Clubhouse Dr.
If you are sledding with children who are a variety of skills, the golf course is a great location to go to in the Southern Hills.
NOTE: Before sledding, make sure the area is safe, and dress appropriately (pack dry footwear/attire to stay warm after all your fun).
