After a rather dry winter last year, the snow is finally back in New England.
A fast-moving, weekend snowstorm left Burlington with at least five inches of snow Saturday night -- and perfect sledding conditions.
In a 2011 story we asked readers for suggestions for sledding spots in Burlington. Readers suggested Simonds Park on Bedford Street and behind the Marshall Simonds Middle School on Winn Street.
In another story, it was suggested people avoid sledding on the hill at St. Margaret's Church on Winn Street. According to Burlington Fire Lt. John Skinner and Police Officer Jim Tigges sledders are injured at this location rather frequently.
"That is a dangerous hill," Skinner said, for two reasons: the height of the hill and the way the parking lot is plowed. The plowed snow can make a ramp that launches sledders onto cleared ground – and a very abrupt stop.
