Hang on! The cardboard sled racing season kicks off

Listen to this story
Remember sliding down a snowy hill on a piece of cardboard? Just add some duct tape and paint and you'll be ready for this year's Adirondack Cardboard Sled Racing Circuit. Most of the races are held in conjunction with winter festivals around the region.

The race series begins on Saturday at the sledding hill on Mount Sabattis in Long Lake as part of the Moonlighter's Winter Carnival. All ages are welcome.

Bob Lewin was last year's Adirondack cardboard sledding grand champion. He lives in Blue Mountain Lake and says he competed in his first race four years ago as a way to enjoy winter weekends.
