After U.S. Capitol Police refused to temporarily allow sledding on the Capitol grounds, guerrilla sledders will hit the hills this afternoon.
A “sled-in” protest is scheduled for 1 p.m. on the West Lawn of the Capitol Building.

If you’d rather sled somewhere without a ban, here are some suggestions in Rock Creek Park, Columbia Heights and Georgetown. Have some recommendations in Ward 6? Chime in in the comments.
