Right Said Sled

By Anne Kenderdine

Middle schoolers, watch out. When the white stuff falls, I'm not above grabbing my 1970s McDonald's-bright red-and-yellow flying saucer and sailing down the hill at Washington International School.

Got Plans? readers know that queries about favorite sledding spots are a popular topic in the chats this time of year and that's one of my go-to hills. I've also seen serious sledders at the drop into Rock Creek Park at Calvert and Connecticut and at the Takoma Park Middle School. Guru Julia recalls elementary school days off spent on the bunny slope of Vienna's Nottoway Park. Alexandria's George Washington Masonic Memorial stands high above what some consider the coolest hill. Check this list (scroll down) of sledding spots officially endorsed by District honchos and Prince William and Fairfax county officials respectively. If your preferred slip-sliding destination isn't noted, share your tip in the comments. College students, where are you taking your trays today?

Any ideas on where people sled at night around DC?
