Catching some winter air

COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

There's nothing to make a kid feel like a winter daredevil than fresh snow, a hill and something fast to slide down it on. Even better if you lift off the ground along the way, right?

Here are some shots of airborne sledders, sliders and tubers from the past. 

And a reminder to this year's would-be winter daredevils if/when enough snow comes: Safety first!
