Types of Snow Sleds

Types of Snow SledsThere are many different types of snow sleds that are used on a regular basis. These all have extremely different uses and there are a variety of different reasons they may be used by a variety of different people. The following are some of the more popular and well-known types of sleds that are commonly used:

Dog sleds—these are often used in races, as well as to haul large items from one place to another.

Toboggans—these are basically just sleds without runners and are available in many different forms just as sleds are.

Hand sleds—these are not sleds that are to be ridden on and are instead pulled behind the person with a rope. These are great for transporting items.

Freight Sleds—these are similar to hand sleds because they are meant for transporting freight, but there are a few differences. One main difference is that these are often pulled by dogs or people, depending on how heavy the freight is and the distance of travel. They are also different because they appear to have a box atop the sled (these are often called backboards) that keeps items inside.

Non-sleds—this pertains to all those items that aren’t technically sleds or toboggans, but that are used for the same reason. There are saucers (looks like a large garbage can lid) that are made of plastic, extremely cheap and can reach a high rate of speed just as sleds can. There are also catamarans, that are similar to sleds but are slightly different in the way they are made (they actually look sort of like a mini-trampoline attached to two large skis). These are often close to the same price as sleds, and offer about the same amount of steering ability. There are also a variety of toboggans that are very non-traditional, such as the plastic toboggan that has a steering wheel.

With the many different types of sleds available, you are sure to find one that fits your needs perfectly. Whether you are looking for fun on a hill, or are interested in transporting large items through snow, there are sleds to fit almost any need.
