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 8

The next step was to test out our chainsaw winch to see if it was strong enough to pull the sled. It was and voila we were in business. We just needed to make some tea (from spruce tips and oranges) and load up the truck. Once on site, we tied a rope to a tree at the top of the hill then threaded it through the capstone winch. The climb up was as relaxing as we imagined it to be… giving us plenty of time for a nice cup of tea and a prayer before the ride down. As for the ride… well let’s just say we lived to build another broject!
