Airboard Inflatable Sled Is Still Relevant This Season


We don’t know about you, but up here in the Northeast, it’s been snowin’. Y’all know what you do when it snows? You either cry about it, or you take advantage of it. The Airboard Inflatable Sled looks like a great way to turn a crappy snow day into a fun snow day:

Arriving in the States via Europe this winter, the Airboard, a 6-pound inflatable boogie board for the snow, is ideal for either backcountry or ski-resort sliding. Operation is simple: Lie on your chest and hold on tight. I-beams in the body provide shock resistance, while the ribbed underbelly allows you to steer and stop by shifting your weight. Good thing too: This thing’s speed record is 77 miles per hour

Considering it has no visible brakes and you’re traveling downhill face first, we don’t recommend trying to beat that particular record. But if you’re looking for some good, clean, but rather expensive winter fun, the Airboard can be had for $380.

Bean Bag Sled Cushions Your Heiny

By David Ponce

Sledding is fun. We like the part where we slam into innocent bystanders loitering at the foot of the hill, only to run away hysterically when they threaten us with bodily harm. We enjoy the hard packed snow on our posteriors a little less, especially when all we have to get down that hill is a garbage bag. Don’t laugh, you’ve been there. But we’re thinking of investing in this here Bean Bag Sled. The bottom is double coated in PVC while the inside contains two things: a bunch of 2mm polystyrene spheres and an air bladder (hand pump required). Two straps make you feel like you could steer the thing, but the complete absence of any hard edges to carve into the snow pretty much ensures these are just decorative.

At $300, it’s definitely on the expensive side of sleds. But years of garbage bag sledding have allowed us to save up for this.
