A bonus tip!



If you fancy going sledging in the evening or even on the ski slopes, check with the tourist office in your resort: "night sledging" events, generally reserved for adults, are sometimes organised.

Please note that access to all these slopes naturally depends on the snow conditions.

How about a recap of the equipment you need?

It's really quite straightforward: take your ski stuff and a pair of good après boots, and you're good to go!

The hands are used a lot in sledging, to brake as well as to steer, and they're positioned quite close to the snow, so make sure you have a good pair of waterproof ski gloves/mittens.

We really can't say it enough: for you as well as your children, it's essential to wear a helmet for all winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, sledging, etc.).

You should also take a ski mask, to protect your eyes from UV rays and maintain good vision even when you gain speed.

And of course it is important to adhere to the following safety rules: 

- Never set off on the run when another sledge is on the track in front of you, to avoid any risk of collision.

- Walk up the sides of the track so as not to get in the way of other sledgers.

- It is forbidden to sledge on ski slopes and mountain roads, even snowy ones.

In our series of video tutorials, our in-house sledger gives you all her top tips for safe and smooth sledging in the snow. Here is our step-by-step guide to driving your sledge (wooden, tray or snow shovel). 

so, have you made your choice? 

Then it's time to go and have fun!
