It's nothing but snow as far as the eye can see. So, what's there to do? Dig out the sled of course, but just where are the best places to take a ride down a hill?

Last winter, we asked our readers where the best places to go sleigh ridding in the Westhampton-Hampton Bays area is. The following is a round up of responses. Please be aware some areas named may have restrictions.

Chris Con said "From the list of inappropriate / unsafe spots I had the pleasure of sledding as a child — Spinney Hills, The East Quogue Sump off Kennedy Ave, East Coast Mines also in East Quogue. For an actual nice family safe spot? East Quogue elementary has a decent (and safe) hill.

Pat Burke Frost wrote, "There is a small hill for young kids behind the Westhampton Beach elementary school."

Chris Con also mentioned, "For parents- Shinnecock golf course has had some great sledding in the past.. I'm not sure what their current policy is with allowing families/sledders."

Victoria Hedberg Kingwell said, "And don't forget the power lines off Pleasure Drive!"

And Virginia Shene Whitelaw responded, "The 'Hill' in East Quogue.
