BOISE – After a fresh snowfall in the Treasure Valley, dozens can be found on Simplot Hill sledding down its steep slopes.

Sunday, the hill was crowded and that could because we don’t know how long the snow will stick.

“We came down about an hour ago to take advantage of the freshly fallen snow to do a little sledding with Luke and his little brother Nick,” said Boise father Mike Soltau. “So it’s been good.”

Mike and his boys were seen sledding and screaming, even falling-- but having fun.

“It’s fun to have access to a place like this that has snow and able to take advantage of this and get out with the family and have a good morning,” said Soltau.

Like many, Mike got his kids ready to bare the elements.

“Got the snow pants the snow gear and we are having a good morning,” he said.

The conditions were just right, according to the kids sledding -- well sort of.

“It’s too slippery,” said 5-year-old Luke Soltau.

Hiking up the hill, to go another round was also the Henson family who live in the North End. 

“It’s just fun to bundle up and play in the snow and burn some energy and go home and have hot chocolate,” said mother Bridget Hensen.

Her kids said they hope the snow sticks around for awhile, but if it doesn’t-they hope more is on the way

“Keep coming, yeah keep coming, it’s really fun,” shouted the Henson kids.
