Fun for the kids and a serious workout walking up those hills. There are several hills for public sledding, as opposed to organized tubing. You must have your own sled to use these hills and they are not groomed or supervised.

Carter Park
Breckenridge’s sledding hill is at Carter Park located at the end of High Street on the East side of Main Street, behind Breckenridge Elementary School. Turn onto Adams from Main Street and then right on High Street. Carter Park also has a Dog Park and public tennis courts as well as a Pavilion that may be rented for events.

Frisco Adventure Park
This small hill suitable for younger children is off the Nordic Center parking lot and attracts a lot of locals.

Rainbow Park
The town of Silverthorne Recreation Center has two small hills on the playing fields behind the Recreation Center at 430 Rainbow Drive, Silverthorne, CO 80498. There is also a playground next to the smaller hill.
