Toboganning is a winter tradition around Manitoba.
Since we are kind of stuck with winter several months of the year, you may as well send yourself hurtling down the side of a hill for fun! There are several places to go sledding. But make sure you are careful – hitting some bumps or ice can be pretty painful and there have definitely been some injuries. Wear your puffiest snowsuit and take care!
These are city-run facilities. You can check the city’s website to see which are open or closed.
