Let's go tobogganing!

Wait, what's tobogganing? Oh, you my friend are in for a treat!

These are twin, 1/4 mile long, refrigerated tracks! They run whether it's snowing or not. The place gets packed, so we need to arrive early.

Meet at the WalMart (8300 E 96th St, Fishers) to car pool. The car pool leaves promptly at 8:00AM!

It takes about 2 hours and 20 minutes to drive there. If you are carpooling, you will need to contribute money for gas. In a car with 4 people, this might be $20 or more per person. The round trip is about 340 miles. You will also need to share the split cost of a toboggan. 4 people sharing a toboggan for 2 hours will be about $9 per person. I believe the toboggan run is cash only.


If you opt to meet us at Pokagon, you only need to split the cost of a toboggan (about $9 per person). Meet at the Toboggan Warming Center (450 Lane 100 Lake James, Angola, IN) before 10:30AM.

We will eat lunch at the Potowatomi Inn after tobogganing. If everyone wants to hike Pokagon or check out Trine SRA we can do that after lunch. To be honest, after two hours of tobogganing, most people are worn out!

Bring the following:

Hat, Scarf, Sunglasses (especially if there is rain or snow), warm clothes and boots. I usually wear insulated overalls over my clothes. Ski pants or a snow suit will work too. Of course, if it is an abnormally warm day, dress may be a little lighter. Make sure these are clothes that can get a little dirty.

Money for lunch or snacks at the warming station, gas, and toboggan rental.


Water and a snack

A Positive Attitude!

The sleds have to be carried back up the hill after each run. Four people carry one sled, so it is fairly easy. The walk is approximately 1/4 mile and involves stairs. Please consider your fitness level before committing to this event.
