Fresh powder is adding fun for those looking to get on the hills.
In the Fort, there's six inspected tobogganing hills that are recommended by the city for those looking to go sledding.
"We ask that people toboggan on the designated hills and that people stay away from storm ponds, roads, rivers and parking lots," said Jean Dabels, parks manager with the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
The inspected hills are at West River's Edge, Westpark Drive, Amphitheatre, Tennis Court, Campground and Langworthy. A map can be found here.
Other tips include:
- Wear a helmet to reduce the risk of head injury
- Prevent strangulation by wearing neck warmers instead of scarves and avoiding outer clothing with drawstrings
- Only toboggan in the daylight or on well lit hills
- Go down the hill sitting up or kneeling on the toboggan. Never slide down headfirst or standing up
- Be sure your path is clear of obstacles and people all the way down the hill
- Stay in control of your toboggan. Avoid inner tubes and snow discs that are difficult to control
- If you fall off or stop unexpectedly, quickly move out of the way of other tobogganers
- Walk back up the side of the hill, away from other tobogganers
