Sliding Down

More today from Jacques Cartier Park and Winterlude. These giant mounds of snow are sculpted to include slide runs, with water used as needed to make them more slippery. While I didn't go down this year, I have in the past, and it's a lot of fun on one of these tubes.


Finished with one slide area, I proceeded to the next one, approaching it first from the left side, where visitors were ascending the slope in the middle, and making use of slide lanes over on the left, at least on this day. This one takes particular advantage of the gradual slope in the park that leads down towards the river shoreline. I have more from the park to come.

  9. We have a small local hill which we used to take the kids to about once a winter on snow days. That's when we had them more, so we missed last year and so far this year. I have wanted to go down once in my 70s just to have done it, but it's a no go so far.

  15. I do have to admit that as a kid I did love sledding down hills like that. That was back when I could tolerate the cold.

    Looking at it makes me go back to my childhood. Although our slide tubes were much lower and shorter ... ;-)

  21. What fun. The one thing I liked about the cold. When the snow was deep enough we could sled down the one field. Tweeted.
