This afternoon I took the girls sledding at Mt. Chinguacousy. As Alpine as that may sound, the mountain (hill???) is probably man made for the pure purpose of winter recreational sports.
The girls got new smaller sleds with a slightly elevated seating area and just the two runners contacting the surface. I factored this into my calculations when buying the sled and estimated that they would be fast.
Boy were they fast. They were the fastest on the slope, beating all the other sleds by a wide margin. And I already have plans on pimping them out for more speed.
An hour and a half later and my feet were freezing, but the girls were still not willing to get off the slopes.
Here are some pics taken at the end of the day.
