Collin’s family has recently decided to make this a tradition after having such a blast the last time we did it! It’s something the adults love just as much as the kids. The worst part about sledding is walking up the hill, so hallelujah for the moving escalator that takes you back up! Two hours is the perfect amount of time for this!

We hope you have an amazing holiday season!
