Where Kids Love to Fly Through the Snow

Driving around in it may not be fun, but we can thank lake effect snow for at least one thing–wearing kids out! Trudging up hills in knee deep snow, sledding down, and trudging up again, and again, and again is exhilarating and exhausting. And kids can’t get enough of it.

Pretty soon, the following slopes are going to be packed with kids screaming with delight. Use this list to make sure your kids are one of them!

No matter what type of sled (or cardboard box) you ride, you’re going to love these hills.
