Sledding, sliding, tobogganing or tubing - whatever you call it, it's a blast with the right conditions on a sunny winter day. Here's a list and map of some of the best hills across Prince Edward Island so grab your gear and head out for a lot of fun. All sites listed are on public property or open to the public. 

Mill River Resort, Woodstock

Anyone may buy a day pass for outdoor winter activities, including the tubing hill, from the Pro Shop. Tube rentals are available. 

Summerside 

Find monster snow hills at Queen Elizabeth Park and behind Credit Union Place.

Marc Arendz Provincial Ski Park at Brookvale

The giant tubing hill at the Brookvale Nordic Centre is about 250 feet long and lit at night. Tube rentals available or bring your own.

Town of Cornwall

A toboggan hill is only part of the free outdoor fun to be found at the Terry Fox Complex. Enjoy groomed trails for x-country skiing, two outdoor skating rinks and disc golf baskets too.

Stonepark Intermediate School, Charlottetown

Zip down the very steep hill at lightning speed. Your walk back to the top may not be as fast. 

Great Northern Adventures, Mount Herbert

Book a horse and sleigh ride and your admission includes hot chocolate and homemade cookies, on-site petting pen and a sledding hill.

Vernon Bridge

The hill on the way into the Orwell Corner Historic Village is a popular sledding spot for families. You can see the hill from highway #1.

Brudenell

All the locals use the hill off the tee deck for sledding at Brudenell Provincial Park. Also, groomed cross-country ski trails are nearby at the golf course.

Hot chocolate? Yes, please!

Of course, one of the best parts of sledding is the hot drink and treat that inevitably follows. Check out some of the TOP FIVE winter places for hot chocolate and sweets across the Island:

  1. Samuel's Coffee House - Summerside
  2. The Willow Bakery & Café - Kensington
  3. Star & Stable Christmas Store - North Milton
  4. Receiver Coffee Company - North River Causeway & Charlottetown
  5. Cherry on Top Creamery - Souris

Safety tips

  • Wear a helmet (hockey, ski, or snowboard type). A ski helmet is best because it's made for cold weather and for similar falls and speeds.
  • Stay away from roads, water and parking lots. 
  • Avoid loose scarves, drawstrings and long ropes.
  • Sledding is always at your own risk.
