Best Sleds for Snow This Year

1. Best Overall– Not only are these boards big and nice to look at, but the foam they are made of is built to last. You won’t have any issues with inflatables popping or plastic breaking on the ice. Plus, they can hold two people.

3. Best for Toddlers– If you’ve spent more than 12 seconds sledding with a toddler, you know that you want something with a rope to pull it (and likely the toddler) back up the hill. This classic toboggan also fits adults, so you can hang on tight to those kiddos and enjoy the ride yourself! Plus, toboggans are widely approved as some of the best sleds for snow, so you know you’ll have some fun.
