Welcome to Black River Sleds

Consider buying a Black River Sled!

I have been building dogsleds since I acquired my first 6 dogs in 1991 and have been selling sleds since 1995. Black River Sleds have been used all over North America. My dogsleds have gotten mushers through Alaska’s Iditarod, the Yukon Quest, Churchill’s Hudson Bay Quest, France’s La Grande Odyssee, Minnesota’s John Beargrease, and Michigan’s UP 200.

My SnowWalker toboggans have slid loads over 500 miles through Manitoba’s Lake Winnipeg country, crossed countless lakes and portages of the Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area, and assisted clients of Garret and Alexandra Conover as they traversed the wilds of Maine and Labrador. My aim is not to build the most sleds but to build durable, affordable sleds that meet the demands of musher and snow walker. I think you will agree!
