We may be biased, but there is no better Northern past time than working in the warmth of your cabin or shop building a family heirloom. Our new wooden toboggan kit makes this pastime available to anyone with a little time and some basic tools!
Northern Toboggan Co is the premier builder of wooden toboggans and sleds. Country Ways has been a supplier of snowshoe and other outdoor kits for over forty years.
In this kit, we leveraged our centuries old principles to design a wood toboggan kit offering that has our standard of quality. We have worked with our Wisconsin lumber supplier to optimize our supply of the highest grade ash. Ash has been the traditional snowshoe and toboggan material in this area for Native Americans and landmen for centuries. It bends well, maintains its integrity, and is aesthetically beautiful.
The Northern Toboggan Kit is designed to empower our customers with the ability to make something meaningful for their families to enjoy for generations.

The Luxury Wooden Toboggan is modeled after our original cargo Traditional Toboggans. These originals have been thoroughly tested through decades of use in the harsh Canadian North. By extending these traditional principles, we created the highest quality downhill toboggan by design, construction, materials, and beauty. It has to be to have our brand. You won't find another toboggan with a story and quality like this.
Carefully building these toboggans for downhill sledding, our Craftsman laminates every wooden toboggan crosspiece in order to withstand decades of repeated twisting. The gradual initial curl allows our downhill sled to ride higher, rather than plow into snowdrifts and in powdery conditions. We have learned from generations of craftsmen and have continued to perfect a natural bending process that allows us to use thicker boards. Constructing toboggans of red oak also provides a beautiful and durable grain perfect for winter snow sleds.
