New Look For An Old Pastime

It’s a pastime as old as, well, the hills.

When snow falls, Westporters head to their favorite sledding spots.

Birchwood Country Club, Greens Farms Elementary School and Staples High are old favorites. When the town bought Winslow Park in 1988, it quickly became another cold weather hot spot.

Not much has changed since our parents and grandparents sledded, tobogganed and slid down these slopes. That’s the way it should be.

The only thing new, in fact, is this view.

Check out Mark Mathias’ drone footage. And — this being 2021, when we worry about these things — be assured, it’s all FAA regulations-compliant.
