Toboggan safely

The City of Toronto has guidelines on how to sled safely. Report unsafe conditions to 311 and call 911 if there is an emergency.

Check the hill

  • Make sure the hill is free of hazards like trees, rocks, bumps, fences and bare spots.
  • Check to see that there is a lot of room to stop at the bottom of the hill, away from rivers, roads or railroads.
  • Avoid ice-covered areas.

Check your gear

  • Use proper sliding equipment. Inner tubes and plastic discs are difficult to control and can be dangerous.
  • Avoid loose scarves, drawstrings and long ropes.
  • Wear a helmet. Ski helmets are recommended since they’re made for cold weather and similar falls and speed.

Toboggan safely

  • Kneel or sit on your toboggan. Don’t stand or lie down head first.
  • Slide down the middle of the hill and climb up the sides.
  • Make sure your route is clear before sliding.
  • All children should be supervised by an adult.
  • Please leave your pets at home. Pets may get excited, become hard to control and could cause injury.
