CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Hundreds of people spent time sledding outside Bowman Woods Elementary School Saturday afternoon.

This weeks blizzard was the single largest snow event at the popular sledding hill since February 2011.

"It's long, it's not that steep and it's a little bumpy," said Brodie Breyer, who spent time sledding with family on Saturday. "It's fun."

A deep snow-pack and cool temperatures means the snow will likely remain on the hill through the new year.

Last minute shoppers also lined streets around the Lindale Mall.

"It's cluttered, very cluttered," said Sean Gaffey, who parked a few lots away from the mall entrance.

With similar weather on the way Sunday, the same scene is expected to last through the weekend.
