Truckee Snowtubing and Sledding

Truckee Snowtubing and Sledding is a Blast! In winter, it seems that wherever there is a hill, you will see kids (and adults) sledding and having a fantastic time!

We lived in Glenshire, and one of our favorite places to sled, was on Glenshire Drive as you were heading to Glenshire from town, there was a great hill before you crossed over the Truckee River. It didn't look that steep, until you had to keep climbing back up it...what an unbelievably great workout!

My son Ryan, always talked to our snow removal company at the beginning of each winter season, and made sure they built a sledding hill to his specifications on the side of our driveway, every time that they needed to plow our driveway. We were the envy of the neighborhood, and the house that the neighborhood kids gravitated to!

I must say, that I am a little disappointed with the Ski areas that have installed these new "Magic Carpets" that whisk kids and adults up the hill without them lifting a muscle. With Childhood Obesity hitting epic numbers, it is sad to me to take the "exercise" out of such a fun thing like sledding!

The video below is phenomenal! I can't even begin to tell you how many times that I've watched it! This awesome snowman slide was built in South Lake Tahoe using 80 hours of shoveling!
