Ballston Spa Celebrating Winter

Every year, one of the most visible parts of Ballston Spa's winterfest is a giant slide down Bath Street, made using snow left over from snow removal. The exception was 2012 when the very mild winter curtailed construction of the slide due to lack of snow.

As always, the construction of the huge slide meant it was functionally two slides in one. The upper slide with a nice extra incline at the beginning for a fast start, and the lower slope which lacked the initial drop off of the top of the slide, but had a stretch that was perfect for sledders who wanted a nice push to start them doen the hill.
