Stiga Snow RacerSee All Stiga Sleds

INSTRUCTIONS ON THE BASICS Once you are out on the hill the basics are simple:

1. Position the sled sideways to the slope, and straddle the sled. We recommend starting your first time on a gentle slope so you get use to the steering action.

2. Now you’re ready to direct yourself down the hill. Lift the sled and turn down the slope. To get a good start just push off with your feet. Once you begin to glide place your feet on the side skis.

3. Practice turning the steering wheel slowly on a gentle slope. Using slow even turns feel how the sled responds as you go down a hill so that you get an idea on how to direct the sled. Note: the faster you go the more responsive the steering will become.

4. As you pick up speed and confidence, you will begin to note how fast and agile the Snowracer really is.

5. FORWARD Riding the sled in a straight line requires that you keep firm control of the steering wheel and your weight evenly distributed as you slide down the hill.

6. Carving LEFT Now you can develop your steering technique. On your descent down the hill, swivel the steering wheel left while shifting your body weight to the left at the same time. The harder you lean and the more you get up on edge the sharper the turn will be.

7. Carving RIGHT To turn right you use the same technique as for turning left, swiveling the steering to the right and shifting your weight right.

8. STOP ME! To stop the sled all you need to do is step on the brake!

9. Alternate STOPPING TECHNIQUE: Turn hard 90 degrees left or right, leaning hard on the side you want to; dig into the snow so that the sled will come to a right angle position the hill. You will find (as you lean hard into a left or right direction) just how quickly your speed will decrease and you will come to a complete stop.

10. Attempting stunts, aerial tricks or jumps increase your risk of being seriously injured. Therefore, we do not instruct or advocate the use of the Snowracer for this purpose. If you do decide to perform stunts, tricks or jumps, please use “common sense” at all times.
