The Ride: The Donner Pass Road sledding hill in mid-town Truckee

Seth Lightcap/Sierra Sun

Do you get out sledding much? This is our first time in years. Stoked to get back on the snow.

Where else have you been


Kirkwood, Sugar Bowl, Toronto…nowhere as nice as here though. The other hills were wack compared to this.

What’s nice about the Truckee hill?

It’s bigger and faster than the other hills we have hit. It’s really fast. Scary fast. Just gotta step up to it and it’s way fun.

How did you find out about

the hill?

We were coming into town yesterday and saw everyone sledding here and just knew we had to do it. It was getting late though so we made sure to come out and check it out today. Now we’re holding down the hill!

Have you ever gotten any

sledding injuries?

Naw…just gotten a little cold and wet but we almost ran over someone by accident.

Will you be back out here tomorrow?

Definitely. You’ll see us ripping

it up.

Have you dropped in from

the tip-top yet?

Not yet, but we’re down to hit it from the top. Let’s go to the top and hit the whole hill! Who’s ready?
