Sebastian Skerbitz, 9, of Jasper, sleds down a hill at Jaycee Park in Jasper on Sunday. Sebastian's mother, Shaun Skerbitz, said she used to sled on the same hill as a child. Now that the family has moved back to Jasper, she enjoys sharing the hill with her son. "I love to go sledding with my parents," Sebastian said.
