More Ways to Go Down the Hill: Eurosleds
High Tech Sledding
It used to be that you would jump on your Flexible Flyer, post a spotter for cars, and slide away the afternoon. These days, the thrill of sliding has gone high tech. Look for lots of options for snow sliding. Skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, and sledding have been joined by the new snowdecks (skate boarding on snow), plus an array of very cool sleds, scooter skates, and other platforms for sliding.
Eurosled has collected an array of sliding devices to make any snow junkie drool. They're broken down their line in to sleds with "runners", "low riders", "pro sliders", and "classics". Their easy to use website offers online ordering (in time for the holidays!).
A great option for families with toddlers and babies is the Snow Baby Stroller. Bundle the little one and stroll on the snow! It folds us for easy storage. Freedom at last!
In the "low rider" category, Eurosled offers a variety of very fast rides. But by far the sleekest looking one is the Snow Car 4x4. The Snow Car has classic Roadster styling and performance and includes Dual ergonomic padded seats, wide-track 4-ski steering, steel brake and an extra long pull cord and contoured handle for easy uphill. I wish my car was that good!
Eurosled's "pro rider" category is a catch all for all types of sliding gear. The Scoofi Ski Set is intriguing. It attaches to your scooter (and you put that in the basement for the winter!), for sliding scooter style. We are anxious to test it to see if it really works. One item to keep an eye on is the Snow Deck. Many resorts are creating mini-terrain parks just for Snow Deck-type boards. The areas will resemble skate parks and offer their own deck areas. A plus on the pocketbook (don't need a lift ticket - but most will require usage fees). For those who just want to slide at low cost, the Snow Fannie is right up your alley. For $6.95 you'll be sliding!
