Sand Sledding Anyone?

Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO

It doesn’t need to be below freezing temperatures for you to sled or board in Colorado’s nationally preserved dunes. With ridges up to 750ft high, a quick walk from the main parking center and any non-vegetated slope is fair game.

Companies rent junior and adult-sized sand sleds starting at about $18-$20 per day from April through October.

To add some more insight to your visit, we recommend the free sunset tours with park rangers included, which also include discussions about the ecosystem of the dunes and let you stargaze through a telescope if the nights are clear.
