It’s officially winter, Nebraska! Most of the state has seen at least a little bit of snow by now, but very few places have accumulated enough to make for great sledding or snow tubing conditions… yet. That doesn’t mean that we’ve stopped dreaming about snowy winter days spent outdoors. When the snow does finally build up, head to this awesome hill in southeastern Nebraska for tons of cold-weather fun.
This video puts you right in the driver’s seat as this tuber zooms down one of the hills. If you’re prone to motion sickness you might want to skip this one – it’s kind of intense!
For a somewhat calmer look at the hill from a spectator’s viewpoint, check out the video below. Notice there’s a clearly defined area for tubes and sleds to slide on, and there’s a safety stop at the bottom of the hill so you always end up in a predictable place.
There are three hills to enjoy; one of them is about half the length of the others so it’s best for smaller kids. The toboggan runs are open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, and the hills are lit after the sun goes down. You will need a Nebraska parks permit to get into the park. Day passes are available at the entrance.
Find the park at 28500 W Park Hwy (I-80 Exit #426), Ashland, NE 68003.
We know that there are plenty of other sledding and tubing hills in the state, so tell us where your favorite is!
Not too long ago we told you about another awesome attraction for kids at Mahoney State Park – read about it here.
