Build Your Own Pulk

Even though winter is finally over (well, almost as there is still a remaining snow pile behind the barn), I wanted to pass along an informative site and how-to manual on ski pulks. A pulk is a sled pulled behind a skier or snowshoer with a rigid pole system. They’re really useful, but the ones available commercially or on the military surplus market are difficult to obtain, and expensive when you’re able to.

Skipulk.com has an informative, downloadable book on their site that shows you how to inexpensively convert a common plastic sled into a pulk using hardware-store items. They also offer all the parts, as well as complete pulks for sale.  It’s definitely worth a look.

Note: Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
