Kids swap books for boards, sleds and skis after Monday snowfall

South Whidbey residents were quick to take advantage of about two inches of snowfall at Community Park on Monday.

School was cancelled for the day and scores made their way to the park to hit the slopes.

Snow blanketed most of the Puget Sound area, prompting school closures, outages and slick roads. The amount of snow varied greatly, from two inches in the Seattle area to nearly 15 inches in the foothills east of Bellevue.

From the fun to the extreme, here’s our gallery of the scenes from the snow day at Community Park.

Kyle Jensen / The Record — The older kids built ramps on one end of the park, so they could catch some air. Casey Justus gets about 5 feet of air as his friends look on.

Kyle Jensen / The Record — Some piled onto the same board to pick up maximum speed.

Kyle Jensen / The Record — While some focused on ripping downhill and picking up speed, others preferred the taste of the snow. Left to right: Summer Mozer, 2, Wesley Samuelson, 4, and Axton Mozer.
