Incidentally, my eldest (born 2003) has abundant memories of snow and sledging.
For some reason, she's got much more earlier memory than the youngest, and can remember the March 06 snowfall and sledging. In the following years, I took her to the Peak District a few times. The first time, I think 07, the snow was seriously deep; the road had been ploughed, with the 'wall' at the side about 2' deep. We found a place to park on a layby under some trees, which had given some protection so was 'only' about 6" deep. We went into a field that had a decent slope and collapsed in laughter when he stepped into a hollow that had been filled with snow to about 3' deep; was almost as tall as her!. I made a huge snowman in double-quick time because within about 10m of rolling, the ball had gone from cricket ball size to about 4foot in diameter, the snow was that deep. Great sledging. Incidentally, we'd had sleet ad some wet snow with nothing lying all the way across to and east of Manchester, and even at Lyme Park (270m asl), it was just a slushy mess. It was only climbing another hundred metres that the snow began to get better. The really deep stuff began at +400m asl.
We went the next two winters as well but the snow was nowhere near as deep (still a few/several inches, though, and great for sledging).
Then came Dec 09, Jan 10, Dec 10. A couple of low-snow winters, then Jan & Mar 13. The sledges were well-used!!
I've actually got two in the garage that I picked up in a clearance from somewhere, and which have never been used. Think I've 5 sledges in all now 🤣, Never mind, perhaps I'll have grandkids one day (plenty of snow to come when the NAD shuts down altogether 😋)
