No Snow? Here's A Sled For All Seasons

I have no concept of the winter months without snow. In all the cities I've ever lived, snow has always blanketed the sidewalks, roads and trees with magical beauty. But living in climates without flakes doesn't mean you have to miss out on this timeless winter tradition— enter the snow-less sled.

You can find this sled at Hammer and Schlemmer for $89.95. It has two trays that are filled with water and then frozen which attach to the bottom, so even though you might not have any snow, the sled itself has you covered.

We like the idea of sledding in summer months or those in warmer climates being able to experience the joy of the wind in your face while going downhill faster than should be allowed. Now if only there was an ocean-less surfboard for those of us without a coast line all would be right with the world.

If you wanted to try and craft your own, the idea of filling a baking sheet with water to freeze isn't a bad idea, though the method in which each block of ice would stick to the sled — well you're on your own there! Happy sledding!
