Carter Park has a nice sledding area for the kids. There are no sleds to rent. You have to buy your own sleds. Parking is very limited, so go early.

After almost a week of skiing, my wife and I thought our young daughters (10, 7 y.o.) might enjoy some old-school sledding. We were right: They loved Carter Park. We picked up a couple cheapo sleds from the nearby grocery and spent an hour or two on the hill. The girls kept going up and down until they were so... More

Instead of paying a lot of money to sled. Grab a sled from the local grocery store for about 11.00 and head to Carter park for free sledding. Great experience.

Close to downtown and one of the only free activities to do in Breckenridge. Nice size hill with not to much traffic. Pick up a sled and head over. Lots and lots of fun at no cost. Kids and adults will feel safe and daring.

I take my dog to the Carter Park dog park and just realized how many visitors don't ever hear about the free sledding hill right in the center of town! The sledding area is part of an old ski jump that Breckenridge had like many of the mining towns in the 19th century.

Had so much fun. Never snow sled before so i decide to check it out. Felt like a lil kid. The only problem was that i brought a cheap sled amd broke. Nonetheless the less i recommend it and a phenomenal view of the mountains. I want to go back.
