Help us list and map out the awesome places to go sledding in Ann Arbor,  Ypsilanti, Saline, Chelsea, and the rest of Washtenaw County.

Ann Arbor

Northwest side (Water Hill)

North side

  • Beckley Park on Argo Drive (bounded by Pontiac Trail and Longshore Drive) on the North side of Ann Arbor
  • Northside Elementary has a nice hill on the southeast side, but sledding has been banned since several major injuries in the 1990s, including a young girl who suffered severe brain injury due to the hay bales which used to be placed at the bottom of the hill---Michigan's freeze-thaw cycle would create rock-hard blocks out of the bales, which were initially placed to prevent sledders from breaking through a chainlink fence and going into Barton Drive, which runs at the bottom of the hill. The bales have been removed in recent years, but sledding is still considered dangerous and prohibited on this hill.

  • The Radrick Farms Golf Course has one of the tallest sledding hills in town, but you've got to snowshoe or cross-country ski to get there.
  • The mother of all sledding hills in Ann Arbor is the Huron Hills Golf Course off Huron Parkway just south of Geddes. If you head left from the crosswalk, rather than going straight ahead to the main hills, there's a big hill with a sand trap you can make a wee ramp on and launch yourself into the air, especially on snow tubes.
  • A determined crowd of small people sled down a man-made hill in Burns Park, known as Magic Mountain. From the top of it you can see Michigan Stadium.

 

 

Ypsilanti

Saline

Chelsea

  • M-52 and Waterloo Road; turn right on Waterloo, and there's a parking lot on your left.

Sledding can be dangerous; please use precautions.
