Toboggan Chutes have Special Holiday Hours

Kids can spend the day at The Chalet during winter break.

Winter break is fast approaching. And while hills might be scarce in Avon and Avon Lake, we've found a great place in Strongsville to frequent while on Christmas break.

The Chalet Toboggan Chutes will have special hours while kids are off school during winter break:

Dec. 23:  Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Dec. 24:  Noon to 4 p.m.

Dec. 25:  Closed 

Dec. 26:  Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Dec. 28:  Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Dec. 29:  Noon to 10:30 p.m. 

Dec. 30:  Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Dec. 31:  Noon to 5 p.m.

Jan. 1:    Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Jan. 2:    Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Jan. 3:    Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Jan. 4:    Noon to 10:30 p.m.

Jan. 5:    Noon to 5 p.m.

The chutes this year feature a new lift that carries your toboggan to the top of the hill, so all you have to do is walk up the steps.

The chutes, with a 70-foot drop that sends toboggans down 700 feet of ice at 45 mph, operate with or without snow.

Daily admission fee is $10 for adults and $8 for children 11 and under. One-time ride tickets are available for $4. 

This season's regular public tobogganing hours are:

Thursdays: 6 to 10 p.m. (in January, February and  March 2013)

Fridays: 6 to 10:30 p.m. 

Saturdays: noon to 10:30 p.m.           

Sundays: noon to 5 p.m.   

The Chalet has an indoor gathering area with a large-screen television, a snack bar, a loft area with video games, two fireplaces (indoor and outdoor), and indoor restrooms.

All riders must wear gloves or mittens. Children must be at least 42 inches tall to ride, and must be accompanied by an adult. Personal toboggans are not allowed at the facility. 

The Chalet Recreation Area is at 16200 Valley Parkway in Mill Stream Run Reservation, between Routes 42 and 82 in Strongsville.
