investment of a snow tube with a heavy-duty cover and a long leash for pulling.
Measures 43" across.
Promising review: "THESE ARE THE BEST TUBES EVER! We usually spend at least $100 on cheap tubes at the other stores. Because they pop so easily even if it's cold outside and we haven't popped one this season. We will purchase these again. We have a huge hill behind our house and it has lots of sagebrush and we usually lose lots of tubes... BUT NOT THIS YEAR!!" — Amazon Customer
Price: $99 (available in six colors)
kid's pull sled with a harness and sturdy back to keep kids who can't sit up just yet upright for snow day fun.
Promising review: "Having great times with this sled! This child is 7.5-months-old, she's on the smallish side at around 12 or 13 lbs. She can't completely sit up by herself yet, but with the harness works PERFECT! Even without the winter gear, we pulled her around inside the house and she doesn't fall over or out. There is still probably 6" in front of her feet to grow and still use this sled. Those two pockets you see on the sides actually dig into deep snow, so you don't slide across the top as you would in a regular sled. I assume it gives the whole thing more stability. But on flattened snow, like the driveway, you can pull it faster. Worth the $40! Great memories!" — Mom
Price: $39 (available in two colors)
steel runner sled as a Christmas card-perfect look with steering power for maximum control.
Promising review: "Lightweight, sleek looking, very fast, and actually steers well. Sturdy. Took my 200 lbs. down the slope without hiccup. My son had a lot of fun with it. Highly recommended." — al bundy
Price: $79.99+ (available in 48- or 60-inch sizes)
snow tube that'll be perfect for storing and then soaring down hills.
Promising review: "I got this delivered for free with two-day prime delivery four hours before the snow started. I was worried about how to blow it up. Well, stop worrying. Just breath in deeply and breathe out strongly into the tube. It only took about 10 minutes to fill. And the thing is amazing... Just find the nearest hill, hang on to the handles, and let it go.... My 8-year-old son fit perfectly, was able to hang on to the handle bars, and went further than I ever did in my life! This was the best time I have had in a long time!" — NWNJ
sturdy utility sled to help you haul ice fishing supplies, firewood, duck decoys, and all kinds of other things.
Promising review: "Although this thing is small and lightweight it has really taken on some big tasks with no problem. I have dragged deer miles through the woods on this thing. It also comes in very handy when I go ice fishing and don't want to take a ton of stuff with me. It has hauled duck decoys behind the canoe with no issue. I have hauled firewood with this sled and it has earned it keep with that task alone. When I first got this I thought it was a little small for what I wanted to do with it, but turned out to be even more useful because of its smaller size. Very easy to throw in a truck, SUV, or even a car. This probably won't last a lifetime because the construction is a bit thin, but so far so good. I will surely replace it if I destroy it." — JFIRM Price: $23.62

reindeer snow tube as a wintry ride in the winter and a pool float in the summer.
Promising review: "This is sooooo fun, today my daughters (5- and 3-years-old) were riding this sled in my backyard. They really enjoyed it, strongly recommend." — sabrina melody
Promising review: "The sleigh was well constructed and ran well in the snow. Let's see, you asked what did I like least? Pulling the sleigh uphill with two small boys yelling 'faster!'" — Jack Erwin
Price: sled for $62.99 and cushion for $20.49
Promising review: "Fits one adult (or two kids) and tough enough to handle being used as a sled with a single adult inside being pulled by both a 50 pound Siberian husky and an 84 pound golden retriever. Great winter fun and it will be in use this coming winter too. Light enough for a dog sled and for kids to handle." — Penny
Price: $27.42+ (available in 35- or 48-inch and four colors)
toddler pull sled with some structure to keep little ones upright as they go zipping through the snow.
Measures 26.5”x21.5”x11.5”. Recommended for children ages 3 years and under.
Promising review: "I was a little disappointed when I found out I could get a toddler sled at target for like $15, but this sled is SO much higher quality than those so I'm very happy we got this. The rope is long enough for a tall adult to pull along without bending. My 1-year-old loves it!!" — Mary
Price: $42.33+ (available in five colors)
sporty snow sled made of state-of-the-art materials and engineered for optimal steering.
Promising review: "Whew lol... This is a great sled, and faster than the ones you get at BJ's, Walmart, or any retail chain. You pay a premium, but you get it in quality, fun, and speed. I wanted something a little faster than what we had after a day of sledding and my daughter and her cousins seemed smitten with another family's sled. Was just a bit faster than the ones we bought out. I researched sleds, and came across this, whew. I picked up some wax for the skis, and the first time out my daughter and I were both screaming as we went down the hill!!! We couldn't wait for more snow to fall. I did let a guy take a ride who happened to be out one-day sledding. Truth be told, I encouraged him. The look on his face as he walked backed up the hill said it all. What he mustered was, 'this is fast.'" — LeShane L
adorable snow seal to act as a supportive friend for all kinds of ~mild~ snow adventures.
Promising review: "Worked great easy to inflate and durable. Left it out in the cold for five days and didn’t lose much air. My little one loved it!" — Amazon Customer
lightweight toboggan sled you'll have zero problems hauling back up the hill after each joyous ride.
Measures 38.5"x40"x20" and holds up to 220 lbs. Recommended for ages 15+.
Promising review: "This sled rides as awesome as it is high-tech looking. The best thing is how well it steers. It is fast, light, well-designed, and perfect for my 7-year-old granddaughter. We gave it to her for Christmas and the cold is the only thing that will get her off of the thing. I would highly recommend it for young kids." — Kelly J Leavitt
convertible garden wagon sleigh that'll give you some serious flexibility in places with four proper seasons.
Promising review: "Great for Anchorage, Alaska, when you have snow or not so much. Construction is solid and lasting." — Jin Ning
