Some people believe that snow tubing originated in the Alpine Mountains as early as the 1820s. An activity similar to sledding, snow tubing is performed on a slope or hill using an inner tube. Speed is gained, especially on steep slopes, due to the low amount of friction between the snow and tubes used. Learn more about the history of snow tubing and snow sleds within our vast new catalog.
Twin tip skis are modified versions of alpine skis and are designed to allow a skier to take off and ski backwards, as well as forward, down a slope. Most alpine skis have a front end that is curved up, while the rear end is flat. But twin tip skis have both a curved tail and tip, which gave them their name. The first twin tip ski was introduced in 1974. However, they were not successfully marketed until 1997. Discover more about the rich history behind twin tip skis, cross country skis, and ski clothing.
While the origins of the name 'toboggan' are not clear or agreed upon, toboggans remain popular in the sledding world. They are characterised by an exaggerated, curved lip at the front of the sled and are void of metal runners. Used mostly for transportation during the snowy winter months, early Canadian tribes were the first to use toboggans made of wood. Using a toboggan sled for sport is believed to have started in Montreal on the Mount Royal slopes. It later spread to America in the 1880s.
