Whether you are an adult, teenager or kid, the thrill of sliding down a huge snow-covered hill is an unforgettable experience.
I have fond memories of a hand-me-down, small wooden sled that provided hours of outdoor fun and exercise… and the occasional squabbling between me and my brother as to whose turn was next.
The first gift on our list of Holiday gift ideas is for the outdoor-activity lover.
The Mountain Boy Sledworks Ultimate Flyer (available on Amazon.ca, $104.26), made out of birch and willow, plays on the vintage wood look and feel, while using modern custom-molded plastic skids on the bottom for sliding over soft snow and giving you control on hard-packed snow. A pivot-front design allows for slalom turns, 180-degree turns and hockey stops.
Note: Plan on shopping ahead, even with online deliveries to ensure you receive the item before shipping deadlines.
