A former ski hill in the city’s west end. Operating until the 1970s, Carlington Hill now annually gets taken over by the bravest of tobogganers. It’s very steep, and for anyone over 12, the unused chairlift is very tempting. There are usually many jumps carved into the snow, and you’ll often see a few snowboarders trying to get some curves. Essentially, Carlington Hill is two hills in one, the highest being the steepest and showcasing a platform before the second hill. Sure, there are lights for nighttime sledders, but again, this hill is not for the faint of heart.
