Salt Lake Area Sledding Hills

We have hills here! And skiing isn't the only thing you can do on them in the winter. There are several spots around town where you can hop on a sled and take an easy ride for a great family outing. All in this list (except the last item) are free to sled/tube on.

While certainly not an all inclusie list (there are tons of nieghborhood parks that have a hill where sledding is popular), here are a few of the most popular hills.

  • Art Nord Trailhead
    State Road 226 in Ogden, (AKA Old Snowbasin Road), is closed to traffic in the winter.
  • Big Cottonwood Canyon Sledding Hill
    Across the street from the trailhead to the Mill D hike (9 miles into Big Cottonwood Canyon).
  • Sugarhouse Park
    Off of I-80 at 1300 East.
  • Lindsay Gardens
    From Utah.com "Best sledding hill: This one will be disputed, I'm sure, but for my money it's hard to beat the variety of sledding terrain at Lindsay Gardens (M Street and 9th Avenue). This park has the steepest hills in town, not to mention a good view of the city, but its south-facing slopes can melt away quickly if sun follows a snow storm."
  • Creekside Park
    1665 E. 4800 So. in Holladay, this neighborhood park is blessed with a nice hill for wintertime sledding.
  • Utah Sledding Hills
    A list fom SledRiding.com
  • Commercial Tubing / Sledding Hills
    These places charge you to use them, but they offer amenities such as a lift to the top.
