Snowfall Causes Sled Shortage in South Hills

Stores in and around the South Hills can't keep up with the demand for sleds during this snowy weather.

Stores in and around the South Hills can't keep up with the demand for sleds.

Dick's Sporting Goods at South Hills Village has no sleds left in stock. The same story over at Toys R Us. Both stores hoped to have truckloads of new supplies by this weekend, but it's unclear if there will be any new sleds for sale.

The recent snowfall and cold temperatures have made for perfect sledding conditions for local kids. The Upper St. Clair 3-hole golf course has been packed with sledders recently.

Do you know of a store with sleds still in stock? Or do you have a sled alternative to share with local kids? Please share in the comments below.

The alternative to a sled is a cardboard box. That's what we used when we were kids.
