PARK CITY, Utah — Park City’s recreation department is holding its inaugural Cardboard Sled Derby and all are welcome to play. This event is poised to be the first of what has all the makings of an annual town tradition. Be able to say you were at the very first one.
No experience necessary. Get the kids, teenagers, grandparents, neighbors, colleagues, and out-of-towners together and build your own vessel for race day. Creativity in sled decoration and costumes is highly encouraged.
The rules state to use only cardboard, duct tape, paint, string, or twine. All sleds will be inspected prior to the race.
Jessica Moran, Recreation Manager from Park City Recreation told TownLift, “The idea for the Cardboard Sled Derby is fashioned after our annual Cardboard Boat Race, held each summer in the lap pool at the PC MARC. It’s a light-hearted, family-friendly event that has seen great success since it began in 2020, and we’re looking forward to re-creating that same fun and energy on snow. The hill next to the Park City Ice Arena is a local sledding spot that many people are familiar with, and it’s the perfect location for this type of activity.”
