В этом году в Минске хорошо поработали над организацией мест для катания на санях и надувных кругах.
Новые горки сделали в каждом районе столицы и везде в разном количестве. В каких-то местах для их создания было необходимо добавить гору снега,а в каких-то местах существующий рельеф вполне подошел, и работникам пришлось лишь поставить ограждение около территории, чтобы люди, которые катаются не смогли выехать на дорогу.
Большое внимание уделили безопасности возводимых горок, так как в прошлом году, в Беларуси были неодноразовые происшествия травм и даже гибели людей. Только в январе этого года, в больницы обратилось 24 местных жителей с травмами, которые они получили при съезде на тюбингах (10 граждан), санках (4), коньках (3), лыжах, сноубордах и др.
