It’s Snowing!

Winter is here, the snow is falling and you’re in need of a sledge!

You may have woken up this morning to sunshine and a light frost, but that’s only the beginning… All over the UK this week, we are in for a thick covering of snow, and some of you may already have it!

The Davos Sledge

Way back in 1883, the first official sled race was held in a place called Davos in Switzerland, leading to the name of the traditional wooden sledge/toboggan.

These are £59.99 with FREE delivery throughout mainland UK. How good is that?

  • Seating slats are 78cm long & 27cm wide.
  • Tested to take 220kg. The runners are 36cm wide overall and wider than the seat, making it very stable.
