Originally made to be pulled by a team of dogs, these sleds are equally at home behind a snowmobile, ATV, or side-by-side.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.

Our clients of Northern Canada prefer our “non-disposable” oak boards over any fiberglass or plastic sled because they often last generations of hard use, not just a season or two. Historically, woodsmen would boil or steam wooden planks, bending the boards into a makeshift curl to better ride across the frozen north.  In those days, simple ancestors of the oak board towing wood toboggan were pulled by hand or by dog without anything but coarse woven rope and brute strength. The right amount of bend could greatly reduce travel times allowing for heavier loads, wider trapping territory and better connected communities. It’s in the spirit of that tradition, of simple steam bent wood, that we founded our company. In that way, the towing toboggan might be the most central of all our products.  A classic shape, an elegant curve -- refined and enhanced over decades of workmanship. The towing toboggan still offers everything you need for freighting family, firewood or gear through the snow.  Its sturdy red oak construction offers only the essentials -- functionality, style, and dependability year after year.

While we have standardized the most popular length and width, there are Custom Sizes Available. Just gives us a call or send and email and we'll get you the information you need!
