201 Family - - CONTENTS - WRIT­TEN BY LUCY PROBERT

Whether it’s a slope in your neigh­bor’s yard, a hill in the county park or a steep in­cline at the ele­men­tary school in town, find­ing the per­fect sled­ding spot is sweet. And it’s some­thing you don’t quickly for­get.

“Sled­ding was such a big part of my childhood,” says An­gele Kas­sar Ek­ert, who grew up in Ha­worth and went sled­ding as a kid at White Beeches Coun­try Club. She now lives in Ridge­wood with her fam­ily. “We had to­bog­gans, which a bunch of us would pile on, and the ride seemed to last for­ever. The walk back up was long and hard, but the thrill com­ing down was worth it. We would fly!”

Ready to make a great win­ter mem­ory for your kids? Here, in no par­tic­u­lar or­der, are 10 pop­u­lar sled­ding hills.
