Looking for your opinion:

** Should we call the act of sliding down a snowy hill on a wooden or plastic device “tobogganing” or “sledding”? **

I’m partial to tobogganing as a catch-all for riding on everything from those old wooden sleds to crazy carpets.  It sounds more Canadian.  But lately I’ve been hearing more and more people refer to it as “sledding”.

(Or do you call it something else entirely, like “sliding”?)

Tell me what you think in the comments below.
