One of our favorite things about the holiday season is its tendency to remind us what is really important… important things like the sheer thrill of racing down a snow blanketed slope of precarious grade, red-faced with tears of joy streaming out the corners of our eyes, ignoring the warnings and caution of mothers as we hold on for dear life on a Mountain Boy Sledworks Mountain Boggan ($160-$300)

The Mountain Boggan from Mountain Boy Sledworks is indeed the true classic toboggan. A compliment to the Ultimate Flyer, the Mountain Boggan is built for the long haul and multiple riders. A sled crafted with knot-free, steam bent planks, hand-carved willow crosspieces, genuine leather grommets and a marine-grade finish. Plastic sled that breaks after a serious jump pulled by a piece of frozen nylon rope? No thank you. Coming in 4, 6, and 8 foot sizes, the Mountain Boggan can be finished with a hand engraved name and cushy seat pads (shown). The Mountain Boggan isn’t a mere sled, but rather a time capsule to when things were good.
