What is sledging?
Sledging is a winter sport that can be enjoyed by the entire family, both kids and adults. It involves sitting in a vehicle known as a sled, or sledge, and sliding down a snowy hill. You determine the speed and direction you travel in by moving your body around while staying inside the sledge.
To have the most control over your sledge make sure to always face forward when sitting in it. This will make steering your snow sled much easier. There are two main ways that you can turn while sledging. You can either lean in the direction that you want to turn or put your foot into the snow on the side that you want to turn to. We recommend using your body movements as it's always safer to stay contained in your sledge.
When you need to stop or slow down you can either wait for the end of the slope to come and you’ll eventually run out of momentum or you can put both feet out into the snow.
The beauty of the sledges available at Decathlon is that they can be easily transported anywhere. Is it a fifteen-minute walk to your nearest snow-covered hill? That's no problem, just attach a lead from our sledge accessories to your sledge to easily pull it behind you as you walk there.
What makes sledging so great?
People underestimate the value of sledging in Ireland. Think back to some of your fondest memories as a kid and you'll remember at least one epic snow day when your parents took you down to the park that had been transformed into this amazing winter sledging resort filled with kids playing and having the time of their lives. Sledging with everyone from your childhood leads to some of the most magical memories you’ll experience.
The competitiveness that comes with sledging mightn't seem like something that makes it great but just think about the rush you'll get from whizzing down that hill at your top speed and just beating your best friend by a hair. Of course, they’ll argue and say they one, but we all know you actually won and they’re being a sore loser.
Hitting the hills to go sledging with your family is an excellent way for everyone to bond and have fun together. The parents can sit back with a hot drink and watch their kids make memories that'll last a lifetime until they're inevitably dragged onto the slopes to race the kids. Your relaxing hot drink is now ruined, but it’ll be worth it to bring you back to your childhood.
We don’t always get a lot of snow in Ireland, so it's always good to take the time to appreciate how beautiful our country is when it's snow-covered. Whether you enjoy it by sledging or by just sitting back and enjoying the views is up to you.
