Here Are the 8 Best Places To Go Sled Riding In Kansas City This Winter
Sometimes it’s better to be prepared for a snow day rather than waiting on snow to actually happen. Though in past years we’ve had either no snow at all or lots of it, we hope this year there’s at least a few days where we can all enjoy white winter scenes in all our favorite places. Though we’re supposed to have a mild winter, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make sure we have plans to enjoy the snow to its fullest. Here’s eight of the best places to go sledding in the KC area this year.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

1. Suicide Hill – 57th and Brookside, Kansas City, Missouri
Of course we couldn’t forget the famous Suicide Hill. This video by YouTube user Daniel Westra is a great example of the delight (and minimal danger) you’ll find on this hill. However, if you’re not ready for the big one, there are smaller slopes nearby to have fun on as well. It’s not unheard of to break your sleds here, so make sure yours is sturdy enough for the bumpy ride that awaits you.
Happy sledding! Afterwards, snuggle up with some hot cocoa and defrost your fingers and toes before heading out on this Christmas Lights Road Trip we’ve put together for you.
