Are there any buzzers out there that enjoy sledding (on snow that is) as much as me? For the past 4 days I've been out on a sled everyday going down huge hills and what not. It reminded me a great deal of riding coasters so I thought it's a good way to look at the offseason. Anyone else enjoy this?

Nope. I hate it. It's cold and wet. I prefer to stay indoors during the offseason. :)

Yeah, snow and cold suck. That is why I want to move to Florida where I can go sledding on Montu and Kumba for the holidays.

I snowboard. Well... very well... some would say i am the most talented snowboarder this world has ever seen. Godspeed,

oh and by the way, kick the sky.. you should kick yourself in the kiester. there is nothing wrong with snow, and you are a smug hateful, unhappy person.

No I am not a smug hateful person, I am someone who has lived in Wisconsin 28 of my 34 years and that is way too many Wisconsin winters to deal with. I used to ski, even camp in the snow but now it is just too uncomfortable for me. Give me Florida sunshine and ocean breezes instead of this white crap that is piling up outside.

Yeah, I love it. We have 8 inches on the ground right now. I went sledding and snowboarding earlier on the golf course. It reminds me of riding coasters too.

Well I do sled once every winter on something that shouldn't be used as a sled, just for fun but usualy I'm a winter hater. Too short days, too cold, you can't use your bike and I hate to whine :-P ;)

Yeah, I love sledding. My friend has around a 150 ft tall hill across the street, 3/4 is a path through the woods very steep and all ice. We invented this sledding game/sport thing: death sledding. After the 3/4 of woods, you come out onto an more open, wide hill until you reach the road. We scatter those huge ice blocks that the snowplows make and push on the side of the road on the open part, creating a nasty obstacle course! When you misturn and hit one of those, man does it hurt! It's very hard since you're going like 300 miles an hour, too. It's really awesome, and if you can, you should try this adrenaline rush.

I just remember something about that our little local hill (about 30-50 meters high) usualy has a jump at the bottom. Now if you dare I think you could easily jump over 20 meters. But that would result in some fractures as it's a very hard landing if you use a sledge. So i have never dared to try the jump to get some, what i suppose, should be a very good airtime hill.

Have any of you been so desperate and tried this truly a jackass stunt just for the adrenaline and the airtime?

It is fun the first two or three times , but when you find urself lugging a huge sled back up a huge hill in the freezing cold soaking wet it is not too much fun from there on.

I suppose now is not a good time to mention that it's sunny and 75 degrees here in L.A., Chris? ;-)

I can't wait for it to snow. We havn't had a good snow yet where I live in Northern Indiana. But yes I sled and snowboard. We've gathered on the same hill for many years at the Wabash City Park. Its always a good get together and I'm bound to see alot of old friends. Great exercise too.

Pokagon State Park in the north-east part of the state has two 1200 ft. tobogan runs which are an absolute blast. You can get about 5 people on the sled and it really moves. Its on a refrigerated track and is open from late Novemeber to March. The track even has some bunny hops.

Well I did get some airtime today, but it wasn't very good for me considering I have a bruise on my bum the size of Texas.

For those of you that happen to live in climates that allow for the local parks to be open year round, you'll never know the sheer and absolute excitment and joy that comes in the Spring as opening day approaches. The early Spring as the coaster season lies entirely ahead of you, its beautifull and unmatched. Until that day I've got to make the absolute best of winter and I insist on enjoying it immensly. I did flip my van last winter when I hit a patch of ice. That was kind of freaky.

I love skiing and tubing. I have two hills in my backyard and one is for tubing and one is for skiing and boardin. This year I've been making money from some of my locals because I keep the trails in good condition and make jumps and stuff so its sorta like a mini resort even though there isn't a lift (any ideas? ;) )

If you can't handle snow thats really sad. Its not that bad and it gives you something to do rather than sit on the computer all day.
