With Yukon students out of school Wednesday through Friday due to the winter snowstorm, many local youth have made their way to “Boot Hill” for some sledding fun.
The large observation mound on the north side of Chisholm Trail Park, 500 W Vandament, always seems to be a popular destination on “snow days” in Yukon.
Yukon youth enjoy sliding down the steep hill using toboggans, sleds, downhill saucers, or even cardboard boxes.
“The trip downhill was a lot more fun than the trip uphill!” said Pailyn Posey, 13.
Temperatures will remain brisk this weekend but skies will be at least partially clear. There’s not significant precipitation forecasted.
Many Yukon parents are confident city streets will start clearing up so their children can return to the classroom next Monday morning.
