Sledding in Western MA, According to MassLive

The snow has been falling, prompting people to dig out there sleds and head to the hills. I mentioned in an earlier post seeing people sledding on the corner of Hamilton and George Hannum. A few days later, MassLive published this article about sledding in the Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin counties. It lists a few sledding hills in
Amherst (Crocker Farm Elementary School, Amherst Regional Middle School and Wildwood Elementary School),
South Hadley (behind South Hadley High School),
Monson (Flynt Park's Dr. Roger's Field off High Street, Quarry Hill Community School by the softball diamond, Granite Valley Middle School near the track ),
and other nearby towns and cities.

Do you have a favourite sledding location in Belchertown or one of the surrounding towns? Here's your chance to share what you know and let us know about it! Leave a comment below.

Day-after Update:
On Saturday I went cross-country skiing at Cherry Hill Golf Course in north Amherst -- and there were a bunch of people sledding on part of the course, as well -- it looked like a fun sledding hill -- long and rolling with no roads or cars in sight -- I may have to give it a try, as soon as I get some kind of sled....
