Parents in Boston dealing with the snow after an early winter storm can check out a map of the area's best sledding spots created by a group of local mothers, according to an article by Steve Annear.

"Community Kangaroo, a collaborative website that tracks and logs family-friendly activities around the state, has been building a map of some of the best sledding spots in the Boston suburbs for the past few years," according to Annear.

"To date, the team of 18 mothers who contribute to the website has amassed dozens of locations where little ones — or not-so-little ones — can shred some powder.
