Sledding open at Mahoney State Park

ASHLAND, Neb. (WOWT) -- One of the great winter outdoor activities in the area is sledding at Mahoney State Park near Ashland.

Sports Director Ross Jernstrom talked with Greg Wagner of Nebraska Game and Parks about the activity.

Head down with your plastic sleds and inner tubes, or rent a sled from the park for a few dollars.

The sledding hill is open during daylight hours. Visitors must have a state park permit to enter; no additional admission is required.

The park has a snow-making machine — and a snow groomer — ensuring there's always a good snow base on the hill as long as it doesn't get too warm. for the family to enjoy.
