Ariens Hill is central to the placemaking aspirations of Green Bay's Titletown District. Envisioned as a slice of earth pushed upward on a crystalline block of permafrost ice, the Sledding Pavilion embodies the idea of the Frozen Tundra that inspired it. Ariens Hill was designed to draw people throughout the year. During winter months, the 30-percent slope functions as a dramatic sledding hill with a ribbon skating trail winding beneath the structure. In warmer seasons, it becomes an inclined lawn used for concerts and recreation, while the skating area below doubles as a public plaza. The snow tube queuing area at the top of the hill becomes an outdoor lounge overlooking the entire Titletown development.
