Here are a few tips to play safely while tobogganing:

• Toboggan during daylight hours, not when it is dark.
• Toboggan when the hill is snow covered, not when it is icy or bare.
• Check the hill and make sure it is free of obstacles and toboggan in the designated area.
• Wear a helmet designed for winter sports.
• Use a toboggan that is in good shape and has brakes and steering.
• Avoid wearing scarves or any clothing that could get caught in a toboggan and cause injury.
• Always sit down and face-forward on a toboggan.
• Do not build jumps or other obstacles on the toboggan hill.
• Walk up the side of the hill and leave the middle open for others coming down the hill.
• If you fall off of your toboggan, move out of the way to avoid being hit.
