Below are some of the products MOUNTAIN BOY SLEDWORKS has shared with ToyDirectory and TDmonthly
Mountain Boy Sledworks, an innovative sledmaking company in the small Colorado mountain town of Silverton, has introduced an artistic interpretation of the time-tested Norwegian kicksled. The unique sleds, first used in the late 1800s, are pure joy to kick down an icy street or hard-packed nordic trail. Unlike other sleds, you pilot from behind while standing: one foot stays on a metal runner as the other foot kicks the sled into action. When one leg gets tired, you switch. And the sleds are much more stable and easy to use than a pair of skis, for instance. Plus, you can take a friend along: your lucky side-kick sits in a semi-reclined wooden deckchair, takes in the sights and enjoys the ride. For the pilot, it's a great workout. For the rider, it's less bumpy than other sleds.
Mountain Boy kicksleds combine elegant design with fine craftsmanship. Most striking is the handle, a carefully chosen, hand-carved piece of native willow. The structure of the sled is American ash, known for its strength and flexibility. The slats that make the very comfortable slatted seat are figured maple, attached with stainless-steel screws, and a copper bar makes a simple, sturdy footrest. The kicksled’s runners are highly flexible tempered steel, with polished and waxed edges and large footplates for the pilot. Rings are welded to the front of each runner, making it simple to attach a bridle and tugline for dogsledding.
Because each kicksled is a one-of-a-kind work, each is signed and numbered on the bottom by the sledmaker. The Sledworks makes three sizes of kicksled: the classic Silverton Kicksled, which seats one adult or child; the unique Double Kicksled, which seats two children and has bright red hand rails; and the Children's Kicksled, which is sized for children aged 6 to 10.

For many people, this is the perfect sled -- the same design as our Classic Flyer, but built with some of the most beautiful wood imaginable. We use tiger maple, sanded smooth and finished with three coats of marine-grade finish. The sled is perfect on a wall, and even better on a good steep hill.
Hand-made in our Silverton workshop in limited quantities; each is signed and numbered by the sledmaker.

The Classic Flyer is what a runner sled should be: tough, with thick kiln-dried planks of beautiful northern birch and extra-thick powder-coated steel runners. It's built with only stainless-steel bolts, and it incorporates the pivot-front design of the Ultimate Flyer to increase the sled's turning power. This heirloom-quality sled is designed to last for more than one lifetime. The Classic Flyer meets all ASTM and USC child safety criteria.
— "There’s a great company called Mountain Boy Sledworks. They are the most beautiful and functional sleds I’ve ever seen,” said Jeff Boyd, owner of Peak-A-Boo Toys in Breckenridge, Colo.
— "They’re really neat — all wood. The Classic Flyer is a flexible flyer style," Boyd added.
— Mountain Boy Sledworks now offers 2" letter engraving lengthwise up the center of all its sleds, including the Classic Flyer.

The Ultimate Flyer is an elegant, hand-made beauty that glides and turns like no other sled you’ve ever tried. The entire front section of the sled pivots, letting you make much sharper turns than on a conventional flexible flyer. And, it looks great standing on the porch in between sled runs. The Flyer is made to last for generations: thick birch planks, hand-carved willow hand rails and stainless-steel hardware make it tough, and we can hand-paint a child’s name right onto the sled. On the bottom of the sled, attached are a pair of proprietary, custom-molded plastic skids. Think of them as greased lightning — they are very fast, but their shape allows for smooth, decisive turning.
Now available in two sizes: Original (47") and 52".
