A Perfect Snow Day: Sledding down The Pit

It’s a Southie kid’s snow day ritual – grabbing a sled and hitting the hill next to the Murphy Rink aka The Pit.  You would sled for hours then head home – your cheeks rosy red – and warm up with a cup of hot cocoa.

Whether you went “coasting” on a Flexible Flyer without parental supervision or on a plastic toboggan with your parents watching closely, some of the best childhood winter memories have been generated on this hill.

This tradition has been around as long as The Pit has been around and we hope that it never goes away!
