Rules to play Snow Sledding

11. Take a Breather
Kids loving see their breath in the air, but for asthmatics, simply taking a breath in subzero temps can be challenging. Thats because cold, dry air is a risk factor for asthmatics, more likely to provoke the condition than warm, moist air. Just as the cold dries and chaps your hands, it can also be drying to the lungs, causing tightening of the bronchial muscles, says Amy Burack, R.N., community asthma programs manager for Childrens Hospital Boston. Talk with your pediatrician to see if you should prepare for winter play with a preventive inhaler or other medication. Pull a neck warmer up over little mouths to warm the air before its inhaled and monitor them for early warning signs of an impending asthma attack, such as shortness of breath, wheezing, dizziness, or chest pain. Spot trouble? Have them head inside ASAP and treat with moist heat, like taking a steamy shower. Follow up with hot chocolate Doctors orders.

The best sleds can be steered by their riders and have brakes to slow them down. Avoid sleds that cant be steered, such as tubes, saucers, or toboggans, and never use a sled substitute like a lunch tray or cardboard box. Good sleds are relatively cheap to buy and are well worth the extra money.

Designate a go to adult. In the event someone gets injured, youll want an adult on hand to administer first aid and, if necessary, take the injured sledder to the emergency room.
Always sit face forward on your sled. Never sled down a hill backwards or while standing, and dont go down the hill face first, as this greatly increases the risk of a head injury.
