Sleds and Pulks??

We’re  looking for information about sleds that can be pulled while skiing,  an alternative to carrying a big pack. It’s for food and gear, not  children.
Do you know where we can rent, buy or borrow at a reasonable cost?  Anything to watch out for?  Have you made your own?    Any advice is appreciated!

I personally know nothing about pulks and sleds, but these guys do:

Greg Christie has two Baby-Glider and Gatineau Park Visitor Centre has one. They are getting old, but they still work. Just take out the seat and you can carry up to 44 pounds of whatever you like.

You can have a look at the new model here:

This is by far the best write up on sleds that I have found.

The pulks in the site above are used and described at this site

have fun reading

to ski with it, you want to have one that has a pole, that stops it from going in front of you on downhills. I have skied short distances with a regular sled for jack rabbits, and it is very annoying to have it sliding around you and in front of you, not to mention dangerous for yourself and other skiers. I would check around to see if anyone has one that is worn out for kids but would work for kit.

Hi , Jo -Ann.
I have one that i would let you used with pleasure.
the whole thing about sled is that they are easy to used on hard pack.
In the soft and deep they tend to flip.
The other point is the harness system.
A rope doesn’t provide good control and won’t provide
the sled to overtake the skier on a donwhill.
The poles are a must.

Here’s a pointer to great DIY information on pulks I’ve built a few of the more advanced pulks described in the book for our family as well as friends. We have two that you’re welcome to borrow.
