Family Fun in New Brunswick- Sliding Hills

Winter is here, and we know you are looking for ways to get outside and enjoy some family time. Tobogganing, tubing, or sliding in New Brunswick is so much fun. New Brunswick gets slammed with the most snow in the Maritimes each year, making this list the perfect resource for your family to get out and enjoy some fun and fresh air.

We have put together a list of the most popular sliding hills we have heard about and/or visited in New Brunswick. We will update and add to this list of sledding hills as we hear of them in our beautiful province. Please let us know your favourite spots and we will add them to our list!

* Please keep in mind that none of these hills are supervised, and all are “slide at your own risk”. Some hills are maintained by municipalities or parks, while many are simply the local’s go-to hills!
Wearing a helmet is recommended. Keep your eyes open, be aware of others on the hill, and remain in control of your sled.
