Who says outdoor adventures have to stop just because it’s cold out?
There are so many ways to have fun outside in Ohio, from tubing and skiing to hiking and ice skating. But none are as exhilarating as the state’s tallest toboggan chutes. Feel the wind in your hair as you speed down the 700-foot ice chutes at The Chalet in Mill Stream Run Reservation in Strongsville.
The chutes opened the day after Thanksgiving and remain open through early March. The best part is, they don’t require snow to function. So if the Ohio weather is being, well, Ohio weather, you don’t have to worry. You’ll still be able to have a blast whether it snows or not.
Day passes for tobogganing are $14 for adults and $12 for kids 11 and under. The chutes are open on weekends only and all riders must be 42 inches to ride. In order to hop in your toboggan, you’ll need to walk up 108 steps to the top of the chute, so be sure to keep that in mind.
All riders are required to wear gloves, so be sure to bring some with you. Although, gloves can be purchased from the ticket booth if necessary.
Tobogganing is a great way to spend an afternoon, but there are some important things to know before you go.
