This old sled was saved from a landfill last spring. It sat deep in the back of my garage until recently.
I have no idea if it would work as a sled — we don’t seem to get enough snow to try it out. Nor have I ever used a heavy one like this — a plastic one seems so much easier to lug up a hill with a kid on it. Even if this sled never again flies down a hill, it will continue to bring some glee to me as a front-porch holiday decoration. Merry Christmas to all!
