Black River Sleds Closing Shop in March of 2025!

You can still purchase my toboggans this winter and next but I have decided to close Black River Sleds in MARCH OF 2025. I will keep making toboggans and tanks and canvas tarps until March 2025. If you have been eying my toboggans and gear, do not hesitate as the items I do not make will sell until gone, like duffels, top bags, and shovels. Check the gear pages for stock left or call/email.  2025 will be 30 years of toboggan and dogsled building since starting to make sleds for others. I have been proud to have been involved in the winter adventures of so many in this way. It will be bittersweet but a move I am ready to make as I explore my own adventures more fully and take more time to delve into other interests. The outdoor community has been a source of community and inspiration and fulfillment for me and will continue to be. Thanks so much for letting me be part of your adventures in this way.

Outfit your toboggan with BRS gear to make your sled setup complete and organized by using my tanks and tarps, toboggan duffels, and top bags.
