Your feet are your brakes. On gentle slopes, always allow
yourself enough safety room to steer uphill to stop, or drag
your feet to slowly stop. On more aggressive slopes, you must
wear sled brakes. Surprise!...that’s why we make them.
Every sled comes with a safety leash. Not for your safety, but
for the safety of others on the hill below. You must wear it
every run. Just clip it onto your leg. Plus, the leash will save
you from having to chase down the hill after a runaway sled. By
unclipping the leash after your ride, you can use it as a tow
rope by clipping it underneath the steering yoke, and pulling
with your hand. However, never sled with the leash attached at
You should never sled alone. You should never sled where you
might accidentally run into a tree, a pole, a car, or anything
else that would cause you to scream, bleed, or race to the
emergency room. We prefer our customers in one piece.

test runs to gauge the slope, conditions, and learn how the sled
performs. Depending on the weather, snow surface, or how hard
you partied the night before, your “usual” hill could be vastly
differently from the last time you were there. At Captain
Avalanche Industries, we always walk our run before we sled it.
If all the previous warnings haven’t made you question your
desire to buy or ride our sled, here’s one, final caveat:
on your own.
