Toboggan Kits

Toboggan Kits

NOTE: Toboggan kits do not come with lashing system. If you would like the lashing system, please add that to your order.

Toboggan kits provide a less expensive alternative to purchasing a completed toboggan. Buying a complete kit saves about 10% off the cost of buying all of the parts. The kit may also satisfy the creative yearnings of the do-it-yourselfer. These kits require some knowledge and skill in tool use and assembly. Some fairly basic tools will suffice in the finishing and final assembly of the parts.

Before you dive in and order a kit, visit bwcast.com and watch Bill construct his. Bill walks you through the complete construction of a 9' SnowWalker Toboggan Kit.

Some of you may also be interested in attending one of our Fall Winter Camping Symposiums in late October each year. I often offer a toboggan building class during these where participants can build their toboggan with me in about 3 - 4 hours. So, if you worry you might not have the tools, space, or time to make your own, check out the offerings at this fall's symposium. I will post more information as this year's symposium gets set.
