THE FUN BONUS!

tobogganing equipment

Need a reminder about equipment?

It’s very simple: take your ski equipment and good après-ski snow boots, and you’re fully equipped!

When sledging, your hands are used a lot to brake and steer, and they’re quite close to the snow, so go for a good pair of waterproof ski gloves / mittens.

We can’t say it too many times, but for you, like your kids, a helmet is essential for all winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, sledging etc).

A ski mask, to protect your eyes from UV rays and maintain good vision even when you pick up speed.

And of course, it’s important to respect the following safety rules: 

- Don’t set off down the track while another sledge is heading down in front of you to avoid any risk of collision.

- Go back up the sides of the run so you don’t get in the way of other sledgers.

- You must not go sledging on ski slopes or mountain roads, even if they’re snow-covered.

In our video tutorial series, our sledger gives you all the keys to learn how to toboggan safely. Step by step, here are our tips for controlling your sledge (wooden, flat or snow shovel).
