Best Sledding in Rochester NY


Jack Frost has really been piling on the snow lately!  And with more coming this winter, why not take some time to enjoy it!?  What better way than to get out and go sledding?  Sledding is the perfect way to spend a snowy day, whether you’re looking for something for the whole family, or a fun spot for a date!  With winter recess just around the corner, sledding is a great way to stay active. (A sled/tube is a great gift too!)  There are lots of opportunities to sled right here.  We’ve got the scoop in our Best Sledding in Rochester NY Guide

The most popular sledding spot in Pittsford is hands-down Powder Mills Park.  Here you’ll find several designated sledding areas; one spot even has a tow rope for those who don’t want to make the long walk up the hill!  Check out this review of sledding at the park for more information on the hills!

Just a couple safety tips for those hitting the hills:

  • Check the hill!  Make sure there are no trees or rocks, or standing water BEFORE you start heading down!!
  • Be aware of others around you!
  • Dress for success!
    • Warm clothes; waterproof items are a plus!!
    • Mittens are preferred over gloves #bodyheat
    • Dress in layers
    • Stagger your zippers

Keep in mind that this park isn’t the only snow in town.
