What a great day to dig the sled out of the basement, and get out with the kids to enjoy the snow!

With extensive research, experience,

and the help of some of our favorite readers, GreatFrumTrips.com has compiled this official New Jersey Jewish Communities Sledding Hill Directory!

Popular Sleds on Amazon.com

Saucers:

 


They are very inexpensive, lightweight, and easy to use. They they offer little or no steering control, though because they are lightweight, are easy to carry uphill.

Toboggans:

They come in a variety of types and different costs, from the basic toboggan to the more expensive models with steering wheels. They are sleds without runners, and come in either wood or plastic models.

Classic Sleds:

These the traditional sleds like the Flexible Flyer with runners and front end steering.

Inflatable Snow Sleds and Tubes:

With a protective blanket of air, they offer a more comfortable and smoother ride. The drawback is that control of steering and speed is more difficult and can be more prone to injuries.


Tips For Safe Sledding:

In recent years, some parks have shut down their sledding slopes as a result of serious injuries and lawsuits. Some of these parks have had injuries caused by teens looking to have a “scary” downhill experience. To ensure your child has a safe and fun sledding experience, follow these recommendations:

  • Purchase a sled with some steering control.
  • Have your child wear protective clothing including a bicycle helmet and protective pads, and gloves. Though helmets are not required in New Jersey for sledding, it’s a good safe practice for children to wear helmets.
  • Closely supervise children. Be alert to other sledders. Proceed down the hill when there are no faster, more aggressive sledders right behind your child. Unsupervised children and teens are more likely to try dangerous stunts that can cause injury to themselves and others.
