Here are simple rules for safer sledding:

  1. Sit face-forward. Never sit head-first or stand.
  2. Go down the hill one at a time and with only one person on the sled – except for adults sledding with young children
  3. Keep arms and legs within the sled.
  4. If you fall off the sled, move out of the way.
  5. Walk up the side of the hill leaving a path for other sledders.
  6. Roll off a sled that won't stop.
  7. Never ride a sled being pulled by a moving vehicle.
