Sledding


Discover the Forest Roads all over again during the winter snows.  Darrington has several roads that make for some great sledding fun.  Some tips for safely driving on snow and icy roads:
  1. When you begin to feel that road conditions are not what you are comfortable driving on turn around and don't wait until you have to turn around or back down the road.
  2. Roads will be icier in the shaded areas so when entering these areas a slower steady driving speed to reduce needed use of brakes.
  3. Never brake hard on ice or compact snow
  4. Never turn you wheels hard while driving on snow or ice.
  5. When pulling off the road to go sledding, be sure you have pulled off the road giving other drivers good clearance from your car.
