Building a Simple Runnered Sled Using Old Skis

This coming weekend is our town’s annual ski and skate sale, where you can pick up used skis very inexpensively. For those of you live in snow country and want to make a winter sled for hauling gear in the bush, you can do so without having to boil and bend wood for a toboggan. Dave Hadfield has a great article called The Modern Toboggan in which he gives step by step instructions on making a simple runnered sled using an old pair of skis for the runners. So if you’re looking for a way to get your gear into the bush, or to be a more mobile ice fisherman, you might want to chase down an old pair of skis and build one.

Gear, General
