While the weather had a bit of a bite to it, a dozen or more kids and their parents braved the chilly temperatures to race down the tobogganing hill at Jim Hadkiss Park in Maple Ridge on Tuesday afternoon.

The wind picked up, turning cheeks rosy and making the climb back up the hill more difficult each time but smiles remained from ear-to-ear.
