The white stuff has returned to Metro Detroit, and chances are if you're a parent, your kids are begging you to take them sledding! Or maybe you're a grown-up who still enjoys the thrill of flying down a snowy hill on a piece of plastic...who are we to judge?
Wondering where to go? We've got you covered. Here are our picks for the Top 10 Oakland County sledding hills (ordered by City).
