Sledding HIll Guide Waukesha County Lake COuntry

22 Local Sledding Hills

It’s snowed!! When I was a child, I loved snow and sledding and making snow angels…ah, fun memories ūüôā And I’m so glad my kiddos enjoy the snow just as much. ¬†Now is the time to take advantage of the Wisconsin winter and take a slide down a local sledding hill here in Waukesha County. ¬†All of the following Waukesha County sledding hills are public parks or on public land. Lake Country Family Fun will never post sledding hills that are on private property. (Although, our favorite hill is our backyard ūüėČ ) So, bundle up and have a great time! If you are looking for sledding hills in the Waukesha County or Lake Country area, look no further, this one is for you!
