Time Required:

Old man winter has returned to the cottage and brothers Andrew and Kevin are hot on his heels for a weekend of frigid fun. Harkening back to yesteryear, the bros land on their weekend project: a toboggan designed to recapture some of their youth --but tricked out with adult amenities, including an ingenious contraption to take all the hard work out of getting rider and sled back up the hill. But as they soon find out, going up the hill in the Ultimate Toboggan isn't going to be the problem... it's coming back down in one piece!

Project Steps

Step 7

Next, we need to attach the chairs to the carrier and the carrier to a pair of skis. In order to raise the carrier up off the skis, we put a couple 2×4’s under them. It added some space for the snow to pass through. We then had an idea of where these skis needed to land. Walker was a bit concerned about the safety of the project and suggested we come up with a breaking system. So we decided on canoe paddles that we could dig into the snow. We also had the perfect place to store them in a pocket on the back of the chairs.
