My godson, Theo, came to stay for a week over Hogmanay. The visit coincided with fantastic snow and so we went sledging. Theo had never done it before but after a run on the baby slope (1:8, 15m long) he decided steeper and faster was much better. Quite right too. After several afternoon sessions on the steeper slope into the primary school car park we decided to head out to the back country and the BIG slopes. These are higher and steeper with a longer runout at the bottom. The transition at the bottom is a bit harsher especially if you are heavier than Theo.
I shot some video as well and I’ll put something up here shortly. In the meantime have a look at the Christmas Eve sledging Kevin and I did.
