All the lovely snowfall makes this a great weekend to suss out the slopes--few and far between in flat Chi Town. Cricket Hill at the lakefront and Wilson is always fun, but a lack of bathrooms nearby can be a hassle. There are indoor bathrooms, an indoor fire pit, and a decent medium sized sled hill on Devon just east of Milwaukee Ave. This is right across the street from Super Dog in his Tarzan Toga--a fun place for food before or after snowy fun.
Buzz is, there are both sled hills and ice skating at Riis Park on Fullerton and Warren Park on Western. And there is a good sized hill with steps behind Soldier Field.
Check out the Park District site for skating rink times and Family Valentine Dances, under the events calendar.
