When it comes to snow, I'm firmly in the "No thank you, lady Nature" camp. It looks pretty in photos and that's about as close as I want to get to the stuff. But I do enjoy a good thrill as much as the next person, so the idea of shooting down the side of a snow-covered hill on nothing but a tiny piece of wood or plastic is undeniably appealing. If you also enjoy a good sled ride, check out this ridiculously cool one you can make yourself!
