is pure joy, and turns nearly all sledders into mountain boys and girls.
Gliding along on hard-packed snow or ice seems effortless (though it’s
actually good exercise), and you get to take your sweetheart or young
one along too.
As if that weren’t good enough, kicksledding is also excellent
aerobic exercise and a fantastic way to get a workout in the course of
routine daily activities!
streets, back roads, and well-used snowmobile trails are perfect for
kicksledding, particularly those with a gentle grade. A long, plowed
driveway curling down a hillside – aaah. And, your dog can help when you
attach the optional Mushing Package. It's not very tough to kicksled,
either (see our
kicksleds are an artistic interpretation of a traditional,
time-tested Nordic design.
The sled body is made of American white ash. We make the very
comfortable slatted seat from many different hardwoods. Screws are
stainless steel, and connecting bolts are high-grade anodized steel.
The runners are highly flexible tempered steel, with polished and waxed
edges. Rings are welded to the front of each runner, making it simple to
attach a bridle and tugline for dogsledding.
Multiple coats of UV-resistant, lead-free finish mean the sled can be
left outside for extended periods without damage.
The handle on
each sled is a specially chosen native willow branch, hand-carved for a
perfect fit and polished to show its natural beauty. No two handles are
alike, and each has its own unique look and feel.
Because each kicksled is a one-of-a-kind work, each is signed and
numbered on the bottom by the sledmaker.
You can choose from
two types of kicksled: the classic Colorado Kicksled, which seats one
adult or child and our unique Double Kicksled, which seats two children
and has bright red hand rails.
Folding down the
kicksled is easy, and reduces the height of the sled from 36" to 7"
-- just right for putting it on top of your car or into the attic for
