I have never seen anybody selling such high quality hand made toboggans. I will gladly pass along your information to every jealous person who asks where the toboggan is from!"

Room for Loved Ones!

This is the one for the whole family, the neighborhood, cousins, and long lost friends. Without sacrificing our hallmark quality, we’ve built this sled measuring nearly seven feet from tip to tail. Three adults or four kids can fit comfortably together, but we’ve heard stories of some folks pushing the limit. To be sure, it’s not a toboggan for the faint of heart. But with a sled like this you’ll never have to face the toboggan hill alone.

Fits Four Sledders


  • Three adults or four kids can fit comfortably together, but we’ve heard stories of some folks pushing the limit. To be sure, it’s not a toboggan for the faint of heart. But with a sled like this you’ll never have to face the toboggan hill alone.
  • Family size is our most traditionally sized toboggan. When people ask us to repair 100+ year-old toboggans, they are usually 8 feet long.

 

Dimensions


  • Overall Length (including curl) is approximately 91 inches
  • Length of Flat = 75 inches
  • Width 15.5 inches  
  • Height 15.5
  • Weight approximately 26 Lbs

Big Toboggan Benefits


  • Family size will travel the straightest and fastest when loaded up and has the most comfortable ride
  • At nearly 8 feet, we hear from many customers that this represents the toboggan of their childhood when they piled on their "whole neighborhood". Toboggan memories can be like fish stories, growing with each share.

Crafted Responsibly and for a Lifetime

Our Wood Philosophy


  • Wood is sourced responsibly and purchased from the mills.
  • Our partners hand select “toboggan grade” boards which are above furniture grade to ensure longevity, bending and beauty.
  • Red Oak boards are durable, beautiful and has a natural bending quality

Roping Matters


  • The pull rope is a soft but strong double braided nylon. Ease people’s mind that it does come with the toboggan
  • The perimeter tie down rope is a no-stretch polyester that is weather resistant and proven.

White braided Dacron roping and a braided polyester for the tow rope

Details Matter


  • Stainless steel hardware used
  • Natural Finish - Linseed oil used for its beauty, wood preservativative, and historical legacy of outdoor wood finish.

“My kids and I absolutely love this toboggan. It really is of the highest quality, and so much room for my girls ( 11 and 13 years old ) and their 220 lb 40 year old kid of a dad!! Thanks again John, it was a pleasure to meet you, and keep up the great work!!”

Paul, Champayne, Winnipeg MB

Our traditional steam bending applied:


  • Steam bent - no chemicals, no mass production.
  • Every board is bent by hand. Each piece of wood is different. It is important for the craftsmen to feel the grains of the wood as they relax and take shape into our drying jigs. Made with love and longevity in mind

"We received the Toboggan today! Let me rephrase that and say the BEAUTIFUL Toboggan. Not that it exceeded my expectation because I really did expect it to be as wonderful as it is. I guess I’ll say my excitement and anticipation matched the reality when it arrived and that doesn’t always happen these days. From us to you, thanks for being a part of our Merry Christmas."
