When would a toboggan be used?

Some winter travelers prefer the traditional toboggan design over skipulks. These designs allow for extremely large loads. Because the toboggans are long and narrow, the gear can be very stable and the width works well for snow shoe tracks. These systems are popular in the Boreal Forest, Canadian Shield and Quetico. They are not as good for cross country skiing or for hilly terrain. We have included one of the best sites for gear toboggans we know of: Black River Sleds (Plastic HDPE)
