Winter Sled


Heading to the snow this holiday season? No doubt your little ones are going to want to go sledding. I stumbled upon this heirloom quality sled last week and fell in love. Who needs a neon snowboard?  The sled’s seat is “beautifully hewn in the traditional manner from thick birch planks and detailed with hand-carved willow rails, but it’s the custom-molded high-grade plastic skid that ensures a brisk, exciting ride” in all types of snow conditions. Instead of zipping down the slopes, I was actually thinking about using the sled as holiday decor. It might sound a little crazy but it would look great by the tree or perched out on the front patio. I am sure my son would love to fill it up with stuffed animals and gifts and pull it around the yard pretending it is Santa’s sleigh.

The sleds are built by Mountain Boy Sledworks, based in the Colorado mountain town of Crested Butte, and are available online at Restoration Harware.
