Sledding, Tobogganing Description
Sledding is a fun outdoor activity in which people ride sleds down snow-covered hills, and pull their sleds back to the top. It can provide some limited cardiorespiratory benefits. While most participants are young, it is also suitable for some adults. It is important to select an area for sledding that is clear of rocks, trees or other obstacles and that has an area at the bottom large enough to stop safely.
