It's All Downhill
If you’re a snow lover, you don’t care what Punxsutawney Phil predicts— you want more snow.
If you’re a snow lover, you don’t care what Punxsutawney Phil predicts— you want more snow. That’s especially true for sleigh riders and snow tubers, who during this time of year can’t get enough of the fluffy white stuff. After the next snowfall, be sure to check out some of the following neighborhood sledding hot spots and fall in love with winter:
Citizen’s Park, Ridgewood: It might not be the steepest ride from top to bottom, but it’s the safest and most popular gathering place in the village after the storm. Make sure to bring a camera too: You’ll have plenty of photo ops here.
Ridgefield Park High School: Classes might be canceled, but the school is where to be when winter weather hits. There are an assortment of hills and plenty of space for kids (and parents) to enjoy.
Cobblestone Hill, Carlstadt: For a unique ride, head here when treacherous conditions force the borough to close cobblestoned Park Lane. It’s truly a neighborhood
destination. “It’s one of my favorite things about living here,” says Karl Damon, 50, of Carlstadt. “It’s not always closed off, but it’s a can’t-miss thrill ride when it’s available.”
* Let it Snow! Palisades Park had the highest recorded snow accumulation (23.9 inches) in Bergen County during the January 2016
blizzard. AccuWeather predicts above-normal snowfall and colder temperatures for this season.
