We've had quite a few snow storms roll through Central New York this winter, so what better way to take advantage of the weather than to get out and enjoy the snow!

The annual cardboard sled race is back this Saturday, February 20 at Skaneateles Ski Hill, so grab the whole family and get to crafting your very own sled for this weekend's event.

Never made your own sled before? No worries! There are two categories you'll be aiming for when crafting this week: speed and creativity. There will be winners for the fastest sled and the most creative sled design. But remember: Participants are only allowed to use cardboard and duct tape. Time to put that stack of old boxes to good use! All others materials are prohibited.

Next Saturday, 2/20, is our annual cardboard sled race. 📦👊🏻

Open to all! 😎 Sleds must only be constructed of cardboard...
