KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tons of metro area kids did not waste any time enjoying their day off from school. 

'Suicide Hill,' in Brookside, Missouri is a popular location for kids and their families on snow days. Monday, it was possibly one of the busiest places in the metro since there was no school for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

"This is where we always head to on the good, snowy days for a sledding adventure," said Erika Foulk. 

Foulk said her daughter, Everleigh, came to the breakfast table in full snow gear, ready for a day in the snow.

The Foulk's were just one of several families who knew 'Suicide Hill' was the place to be, even with minimal snow. 

"Usually, there's neighborhood friends, school friends, and it's a good meet up spot for a cold day," said Foulk. 

From the bottom of the hill looking up, you can see why kids have to be so brave. However, it was the parents who were braving the cold as they watched their kids go down the hill, over and over again. 

"We don't get enough snow around here in this area, so any day that we do get some snow, she's so excited to come out and play," said Foulk. 

After Monday, kids and their parents are hoping for more fresh powder before the season's end.
