Find Incredible Sledding & Snow Tubing Spots in the Clifton Park Area

Sledding and snow tubing are two wonderful ways to spend winter outdoors with your kids. Bring a saucer or a tube to your favorite local sledding hill, or check out a Capital Region snow tubing park.

Note: It is wise to check with officials for each venue before sledding/snow tubing. Please use caution at public hills that are unmonitored.

Sledding Tips

  1. Bring a safe sled to public sledding hills. We recommend one that can be steered and is in good condition.
  2. Pack a thermos of hot cocoa to stay warm when the kids take a break.
  3. Sledding can be dangerous! Sled in designated sledding areas only that are free of fence posts, rocks, and other items that could cause injuries.
  4. Wear warm and waterproof winter clothing.
  5. Avoid steep and icy hills.
  6. Do not walk in the path of other people sledding.
