Everyone knows that the real fun begins at your grandparents’ house. Well, one grandfather in Minnesota took his love for his grandchildren to the next level this winter.
Snow is not new to Minnesota at all, and those that live there know how to make the best of it when it hits hard. Steve, a grandfather, not only battled 2022 snowstorms with creativity, but gave his grandchildren a gift in the process. He built a 200-foot-long sledding course in his backyard.
Steve’s daughter, Nicole Warner, shared a video of him building the course on TikTok. She said it took about 80 hours to build.
Complete with the right amount of twists and turns and adorned with holiday lights, the course is truly a winter wonderland for all ages. Naturally his grandchildren voted to name the course “Papa Bear Plunge” in honor of him.
“They have spent hours sledding already, and plan to use it for the rest of the winter,” Nicole said. “Their reactions have been priceless, smiles from ear to ear.”
We bet their smiles say it all, and expressing both their joy and their gratitude for their grandpa’s awesome efforts.
Share this story to celebrate Steve’s beautiful gift to his grandchildren and the wonderful memories they will have because of it.
