Slip Sliding Away: Sledding At Merry Lane! - Stacey Cardalines Reporting

 


There exists a chess/checkers relationship between skiing and sledding. 

I prefer sledding to skiing, which is odd because I grew up in a wealthy Massachusetts suburb and really should be on the skiing side of the question. You only have to drive to a local hill for sledding, as opposed to driving through half of New Hampshire and spending $1000 for the family to go skiing. Skiing is a very skill-driven sport, and you will hit a tree if you don't know what you're doing. You can hit a tree while sledding, too... but you don't have to waste all that time with Skill Acquisition. You'll be as skilled as you're going to get at sledding after your first ride.

Skiing is the more sophisticated sport, and a good skier is viewed as a superhero in some Alpine countries. Skiing is a snobby way to spend a day. Price some skis/boots/resort vacations and tell me that it isn't a rich man's sport. That's not a problem with sledding. You can spend $10 at Target and be all good and ready to go get Sleddy. 

I'd like to see NASCAR guys race with sleds on a really steep and long hill. They'd be a bit disadvantaged as Southerners who aren't used to snow, but their racing skill would be a fun thing to see flexed on Mount Washington in a blizzard. I bet that Dale Earnhardt Sr. would have been a good sledder if he applied himself to it.

The people who run Merry Lane: A Winter Wonderland understand the appeal of sledding. I know this because I was at their sim and they have sledding. Lanai lets me write about whatever I want, but I am a Sportswriter at heart and I walked by numerous interesting things as I bee-lined to the Sledding hill. Did you really have any doubt?

It's very easy to go Sledding at Merry Lane. You hoof it up to the top of the hill (I saved you that walk by landmarking the sim at the top of the Sledding hill), where you will find a sled. Click on it, and a second sled appears. The sled is bigger than every bed I had before I was married. Hop on that second sled, and off you go. 

The hill is admittedly short, and it would disappoint even a scared 4 year old in real life. However, a clever sledder can use the Arrows keys to keep the sled going forward. You can even go into reverse, an option not available to RL sledders. I made a few runs and was able to tour much of the sim by just powering forward until I hit a hill that my sled momentum couldn't surmount.



Don't go sledding in a dress, like I did. There is no modest way for a girl in a dress to sit on a sled without giving anyone nearby a the view that a girl should only share with her husband and her gynecologist. I was able to work around it because I had the sim to myself when I went, and because I was the one aiming the camera.

The sim is also fun for a walk. Most of it is set up for this purpose and this article is focused on sledding because the reporter who visited the sim is really a very curvy 9-year-old, at least mentally. 

They have a hot cocoa stand, a carousel with reindeer and polar bears, a sort of Christmas village with various trees and toys, a snow globe that you can hop inside of, and a bunch of other seasonal stuff. If you enjoy strolling through a winter landscape, this is the place for you. It's very large, and you can kill a lot of time strolling the acreage.

Like many winter sims, they are only open seasonally. This one closes in early February. By February, most people are sick of Winter and are looking forward to Spring. It just doesn't pay to keep winter sims open too late into winter. So hurry :)

ITS WINTER SPORTS SEASON - Glossom Resident Reporting…





The air smells like snow. Do you know that smell?  Waking up to a frosty morning, a cold, crisp day, the frost breath on our mouth, these are reminiscences of how this 7th natural wonder of the world smells like. Winter wears its beautiful white coat landscapingon every path and making Second Life even more beautiful.

The next few weeks are perfect for practicing Winter Sports. Thousands of Ski and Snowboard fans seek the best places to slide on the snow. With breathtaking scenery as a backdrop and with unique landscapes, winter sports provide so much fun and entertainment to children and grown-ups of all ages who enjoy the snow.

Winter sports are a fantastic way to experience nature. Some residents love the white flat surfaces, while others prefer to burst down the slope at high speed. The keywords here are snow, play and fun. From ice skating to skiing, building a snowman and challenging friends to a snowball fight, whatever the sport or activity, the opportunities are endless.

The SL Enquirer went around SL and found six wonderful trails for the best winter sports. Here are some reasons why you should not fear to adventure into the virtual snow.



Armadon East - "The Boom Winterland Wonderland"

Start your journey with a sleigh tour around the venue, revolutionize the sport of ice dancing with an original choreography; take a lift up to the mountain's peak where you can start exploring the site with a snowmobile, or test your bravery by snowboarding downhill at high speed. And after a well spent day in the snow, there is nothing more comforting than nice cup of hot chocolate.




 Holland Paradise - "Rib & Caycee's Winter Paradise"

Virtual Fishing, snowmobile rides, couples ice skating, carriage rides, horseback riding and sledding are some of the Winter Sports available in this beautiful venue. Here residents coexist with wildlife but no conflict has ever been reported.




Aero Pines Park - "Winter Festival at Aero Pines Park"

The famous Aero Pines Park is celebrating its 8th Annual Winter Festival. Among many other attractions, Winter Sports are a highlight on the calendar of events. Horse Sleighs, Sleds, Snowmobiles, Ice Skating on a beautiful Ice Rink and Cross Country Skiing are some of the offers on this multi-sim venue.




Grand Canyon North - "Lake Tahoe Ski Resort"

Grand Canyon plus Snow is equal to magic. Lake Tahoe Ski Resort offers a wide range of snow sports, like sledding, snowboarding, slalom skiing, snow tubing and snowmobile riding. On a beautiful setting, it inspires couples to romantic sportive adventures.

Landing point:




StarRiderII  - "Christmas and Winter Holiday Village - Ice Skating!"

At this typical Christmas Village you will find a beautiful frozen lake with all the facilities for ice skating. After a nice ride up on the ski lift you will reach the mountain slope where a wide open area is available for other sports like skiing and sledding. Fishing on ice holes is also available for those who prefer less active activities.




REBEL YELL CONCERTS - "WINTER ICE ROCK FESTIVAL 2014@CELEBRITIES HANGOUT"

As you arrive at the Winter Ice Rock Festival venue your eyes will rest on magnificent mountains reachable by sky-rail and full of opportunities such as skiing and sledding.  At the mountain base, an ice skating rink awaits you, among so many other offers.

Landing point:


Grab your warmest clothes, depart on an adventure, climb snowy mountains and have a wonderful time.

Happy Holidays,

Glossom
