Dozens of sledders, young and young at heart, hit the hill after the Omaha area got more than 6 inches of snow.

"I've had it since I was born. It's just kind of an old-school, classic toboggan." said Shawn, 17, adding that it could fit a lot of people.

"I love the snow. It's a snow day," said Bill, who estimated his sled was about 20 years old.  

Dessie said her kids were ready to get rid of some energy.

"We've been home all morning and we finally ventured out and luckily the it was all right. The roads were OK," she said.

Omaha area school districts canceled classes for Tuesday.
