Two of my brothers actually tried this, but one was towed behind the sled on skiis wearing the paraglider. The results were not so elegant or fun as the vid lmao.gif

Hubby and I were watching snowmobile sports at the bar in Toronto and once you get over the fact that the snowmobile will turn as physics dictate, it's just a matter of watching what creative moves the athlete has perfected. I quite enjoy this sport.

I think I posted too soon, it looks like physics can be screwed up by a stuck throttle.

He is lucky he didn't get run over. Done a lot of snowmobiling. Stuck throttle does happen, it would mess up his timing, and 20 feet in the air is not a good time to sort out that kind of problem.

I've never had a stuck throttle but I have sledded a wee bit. Whereabouts are you? Trailriding or mtn riding? Please don't tell me you ride Arctic Cat rofl.gif

Damn I didn't know pulk was used in English! lmao.gif

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulk

That's actually what we used. beerbong.gif I admit it's perhaps not extreme sport but...

Quote:A pulk (from Finnish pulkka)[1] is a Nordic short, low-slung small toboggan used in sport or for transport, pulled by a dog or a skier, or in Lapland pulled by reindeer.[2]

The name of the sport is pulka. The sled can be used to carry supplies such as a tent or food, or transport a child or other person. In Norway, pulks are often used by families with small children on skiing trips (small children being pulled by the parents). In Sweden, pulks are often used, mostly by children, as a winter toy for going downhill. Pulks are nowadays made of plastic, which makes them cheap to buy.

A larger pulk, designed for transporting larger amounts of goods, is called ahkio [ahkio] in Finnish. This word is also used by the US Army for a human-drawn snow sled.
