    Sledding in Ames

    Does anyone on here know of any good places to go sledding in or around Ames? I have heard that there is a golf course that is supposed to be good for sledding. I'm not sure which one, but I'm guessing that they were maybe talking about Veenker just north of campus. And hopefully the place is open to the public and sledding is allowed to be done there.

    Thanks in advance.

    Frisbee golf course out by the ice arena. Drunk sledding at its finest.
    HUGE hill.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Backside of the cemetary on east 13th street. About 1/2 mile east of Duff. Pretty good hill there and lots of room.

    Thanks.

    There are some good ones that I probably wouldn't have thought of.

    Re: Sledding in Ames

    God i used to hate climbing up that hill on 18

    too many adult beverages made it hard.

    especially if your disc decided to roll back down the hill

    Re: Sledding in Ames

    if you are in the sledding mood, you should also check out seven oaks in Boone. Their tube runs are great and you don't have to walk back up the hill like you do when sledding!!!

    I agree! Especially bc its the very last hole and you are already tired. Climbing that beast is a pain...

    Re: Sledding in Ames

    Get yourself a disc sled and rope and tie it to the bumper of a car then see how long someone can stay on it while whipping dounuts in the lots between Hilton and Jack Trice! Then once DPS shows up get the hell out of the lot as fast as you can!

    that hill's excellent for "garbage bag sledding" - get a large garbage bag, punch a hole in the bottom of it, wear it like a straight jacket, and throw yourself down the hill - it's quite fun

    When I lived in towers we used to take food service trays out there to go sledding

    Last winter we found an old mattress at the bottom of that hill. We ended up dragging it to the top and sliding down with 12 people on it. Very fun indeed.

    Actually just utilized the hill next to the new alumni association building a week and a half ago before heading home for break...pretty good as long as you don't crash into the staircase next to the hill
