Sled Riding Locations Across North America consists of visitor submitted sled riding locations accross North America. The site is run by Steve King (webmaster of MissouriScenicRivers.com). King had performed a Google search for sled riding locations around his area in Missouri, and didn't find anything other than some good snow sledding tips (ie. types of sleds, waxing, etc.), sled reviews by kids (8 different kinds) and Flexible Flyer sled collecting & care (ie. types of sleds, waxing, etc.) . 

So Steve had a problem. What was he going to tell his son? That they had to go to the same place they'd been going to for years and years (which BTW, was his first post on the site). 

Instead, Steve and his son embarked on a journey to find new hills that were just as fun, but also without trespassing on someones property. When they did spot a a hill that looked promising, then the questions started to arise. Was the hill on private property or public land? Would permission be granted to sled?  Were there any hazards on or at the bottom of the hill? 

Figuring that there were probably others throughout the United States and Canada that had same dilema and curiosity he came up with the concept for the website.  The site can only grow with input from other people, so please submit any and all hills (besides your backyard, travelled roadways and ski resorts of course), lesser known or popular. 

All submissions will be reviewed before posting.
