The sledding hill is OPEN!

Sledding and skating all in one spot!? Sounds too good to be true, huh?

The Aspen Recreation Center’s Winter Wonderland features all these great outdoor activities that are perfect for après ski or just an afternoon family outing.

Take a ride on the “Whoa Nelly” Sledding Hill. Grab your friends and hang on to your hats! See who can race down the hill first – winner gets his or her sled carried back up the hill by the other racers!

Whether you have fresh new snow or are sledding down the dips and jumps created by other sledders, you’re going to have fun. Bring your own equipment and sled for FREE! Otherwise, rent a sled from us for only $5.
