Why is winter sledding so popular? Winter sledding is technically and financially accessible, but what is sledding’s DNA more specifically made of?
Why should it only happen in winter? Regardless of the season, mountains offer an unfuelled impulse down the hills. Real opportunities exist for those so-called “ski resorts” looking to fill the summer hole until winter comes again. How could a recreational alpine summer sled be designed in order to provide the same delightful experience?
