If brisk winds, below-freezing temps and the twin elements of the season—snow and ice—sound like the stuff your winter dreams are made of, you’re in luck.
When the snow falls, so do the sleds. Among the city’s most popular sledding sites is Mt. Adams, Eden Park. Ice skating is permitted on the lakes in Eden Park when conditions are deemed safe (look for the blue flags), sledding, and cross-country skiing permitted in all park area unless otherwise posted.
