The best sledding hill in town is found at Carter Park, and it's a popular spot for the young or young at heart. When the snow melts, the park boasts a handful of hiking trails, four tennis courts, baseball diamonds and a sand volleyball court, as well as a playground and lots of green space. There's even a dog park.

Many travelers call Carter Park a hidden gem, especially since there is no sledding allowed at Breckenridge Ski Resort. One visitor says that although there are other Colorado ski destinations that are cheaper, her family returns to Breckenridge because of this sledding hill, which is perfect for everyone from toddlers to seniors. Plus, families also appreciated the clean restroom facilities in the park's pavilion. 

You'll find Carter Park on South High Street, just a few minutes from South Main Street. You may find a collection of sleds that are free to use at the bottom of the hill, but you can also rent sleds from places like Ridden on Breckenridge's Main Street. You can also purchase sleds from local stores in town. The park is free to access year-round. For more information, visit Carter Park's website.
