Snow Day: Wolfgang Sirch's Peak Snow Sled

Had Alvar Aalto designed a snow sled (and being from Finland, it's a wonder he didn't), it would have been something like Wolfgang Sirch's Peak Snow Sled. On this snow day, a design like this makes us happy to be digging out:

The bentwood and woven-seated sled is reminiscent of some familiar modernist furniture designs. Only difference: this seat is made to whiz down snowy slopes in high style. And, with perfect timing, the sled is currently on sale at gSelect. The price tag? $399, down from $459.
