Originally made to be pulled by a team of dogs, these sleds are equally at home behind a snowmobile, ATV, or side-by-side. The beautiful slow curl is assembled with individually bent boards, designed to glide easily over brush and debris. The hardy red oak construction allows for the toboggan to be oiled and re-finished as it sustains wear. With 10 feet of length between the tip and the tail, this toboggan sled can fit all the equipment you need for a day of ice fishing or a weekend trip to the cabin. Joyriding with friends and family is also encouraged.

The Towing Toboggan traces its ancestry from Northern Manitoba, across Saskatchewan, and up into the Yukon. Some historians believe that the timeless slow-curl design of our freight toboggan was first introduced to the region by French Canadian pioneers who used these toboggans as trapping sleds. The locals recognized the way these sleds easily glided over brush and debris, shedding snow and protecting heavy loads from damage on trail. 

Because of its slightly smaller size, this heavy-duty snow sled is sometimes referred to as a “dog sled toboggan”. Not so long ago, it would be common to see one of these versatile freight toboggans towing behind a team of dogs. These days snowmobiles are the most popular choice for towing, although many customers also find that an ATV or side by side does the trick just as well, especially when traveling on light snow cover. 

Times have certainly changed, but folks in the northern part of Canada remain some of our best customers. Some of them have been using the same toboggan for 20 years. That’s why we continue to use only the highest quality materials in our time-tested process. Enough of our customers depend on these old snow sleds for their livelihood, so we can’t afford to cut corners. 

Over the past decade, this style of heavy duty sled has become increasingly popular in the more southern parts of the continents. Winter enthusiasts in the southern provinces, as well as the east coast, central and western United States, have started to recognize the value of a sturdy wood towing toboggan for all kinds of different applications. For utility, it can haul just about any type of equipment you can think of. For winter fun, the towing toboggan can be easily converted into a backwoods snow sleigh, hauling family and friends along trails and across open fields. Because we only use premium materials to make our toboggans, the hardy red oak can be oiled and re-finished as it sustains wear, keeping it fresh for years and years of use. Whether you are spending the day ice fishing, a weekend up at the cabin, or just an afternoon joyriding with friends, the Fully Rigged towing toboggan promises to be a stand-by winter companion.
