Sled

This is a great sledding hill. It's about the perfect steepness and really wide. It's also big enough to make it worth a little run on a snowboard or an inner tube. While this is a pretty popular hill, it's pretty hard for it to get overcrowded.

In 2017, some houses were built at the bottom of the hill that make it a little less perfect but there's still plenty of hill for a good time. You just need to be respectful of the people's homes and the end of the slope. There's also a little winding rutted dirt road that comes down to the left of the hill that sometimes is a pretty great little run if the snow's just right.

This hill is back behind the water tower in Founder's Village. To get there, you'll go up past the temple and take the first left. That'll take you into Founders Village. Once you're in the village, just keep right until you get to the hill. It'll be straight in front of you after you pass underneath the water tower.

There's a house being built at the bottom of the hill on East side but there's still a lot of hill available for sledding.

Now there are 2 houses at the bottom. That makes it a little less perfect but still a great sledding hill.

Took my 3 kids ages 1-6. It was hikable enough for them but pretty tough. Perfect steepness though. There were two other groups when we were there but the hill was still wide open. It's the perfect hill if you don't want to go very far.
