~About Mountain Boy Sledworks~
Mountain Boy Founder Brice Hoskin
Founded in 2002
by woodworker and self-proclaimed sledding fanatic Brice Hoskin,
Mountain Boy Sledworks has grown to be the United States' premier maker
of handmade wooden sleds. In 2012, Jen and Rick Hitzemann fell in love
with Mountain Boy.Combining
their deep love of winter sports, woodworking and the Colorado
mountains, they have taken over operations and continue to build upon
the great Mountain Boy tradition. Mountain Boy is still
based in Colorado where sledding is a way of life!
We are working hard to minimize the
impact of all of our operations on the environment. Some key elements
fast-growing, common, sustainable hardwoods such as birch, willow and
Ensuring that every part
of the wood is used. Smaller pieces are turned into kicksled slats or
and the smallest bits end up in our woodstove or in the wood-drying
Just as important, making
products that last! We think it makes sense to buy a sled (or wagon or
push cart) that will last for years, rather than buying a cheaper sled
that won't last nearly as long.
All of our products are
tested to meet CPSIA, ASTM, USC and European CE standards. For our
Certificate of Compliance,
A string of Canadian papers
(the the Ottawa Citizen, Windsor Star, Winnipeg Free Press, Calgary
Herald, Vancouver Sun and Saskatoon Star Phoenix), did a fun article about "souped-up sleds"
becoming the ultimate in kid style. We just think they're fun!
Homes & Gardensrecommended the Bambino Pull Sled in
their 2005 Parent's Choice Toy Buying Guide. They called it a
"classic-looking sled," just right to "pull little ones through any
winter wonderland." To see the article,
Magazinerecommended the Ultimate Flyer in their 2004 Holiday
Gift Guide, calling it a "steerable snow rocket."To see the
