How to Add a Toboggan Hill To The MapMonday, December 31, 2012, by Sebastian Dwornik
It is very easy to add a new toboggan hill to the map.
Here are some simple steps to illustrate this process.
1.) Verify your hill is not already listed on the map at TobogganHills.com.
You can zoom into the location of where your existing hill is and see if there is a marker on it.
2.) If your hill is not on the map, then you can travel to visit your local toboggan hill.
Once you've reached the hill location, you can use a GPS enabled smartphone to get its GPS coordinates.
As well as take a few pictures of the hill to show how steep it looks and the area around it.
If you do not have a GPS enabled device, you can still simply use the Google maps interface on TobogganHills.com to locate the hill precisely as well.
3.) Return to TobogganHills.com and click on the 'ADD HILL' tab.
You'll need to login or register with the site first if you haven't already done so.
And then finally add your neighborhood hill(s), with a brief description, your pictures, and a simple rating of its qualities.
1 - Needs a push
2 - Gravity works, barely
3 - Good speed and safe
4 - Fast and fun
5 - Dangerously fast
1 - No serious hazards
2 - Most paths clear
3 - Easily avoided hazards

2 - Some street parking

That's it! You're done!
Many sleds will thank you for your kind contribution. :)
