If you remember the GT Sno-racer from the 1980's then the Snow Moto would be its modern little cousin.

Sporting a front-end suspension, good steering, brakes, and twin tip skis, this little speedster provides a comfortable ride and control to make it down most any hill.

It also has a towrope with a built-in docking station to allow for dragging the sled back up the hill.

I will stress that this sled is definitely for the little ones, because it has a seat clearly designed for 4-year olds.  Which is fine because they really enjoyed it.

When you can’t get your hands on a legit snowboard, the Summit Surfer sled could be the next best thing.

It’s a combination design of a simple snowboard and a general sled for sitting on.  As well it has a ribbed bottom texture for enhanced traction control and steering.

The sled is very lightweight and its construction material feels like some rubbery, flexible foam type and provides great padding for sitting on, which made for a very comfortable ride.

In the snowboarding position though, I found the surface texture too slippery for my boots to securely stay in the straps.  So it limited my ride in that respect.

But sitting down worked very well and provided a fun trip down the hill.
