Rules for Building Your Sled

  • Sleds must consist of cardboard and tape only. Materials like paint may be used to help decorate the structure but the structural integrity of the sled must be cardboard. That means no hardware or other materials permitted (no glue, wood, plastic, metal, rope, string), no foam.
  • Base of the sled can only be cardboard or tape
  • Tape can be Duct or Packaging ONLY
  • Decorating your sled with paint, pictures, flags, etc. is encouraged.
  • Sleds must be functional as a sled – ie: a person must ride the sled down the hill in order to participate. There is no limit to the number of people that can ride in the sled
  • For the safety of our riders, sleds may not be attached to one another. You can, however, build a sled large enough to fit more than one person!
  • All rides that leave the starting line must cross the finish line with the sled
  • No enhancers like wax, aluminum foil taped to the bottom of the sled to make it go faster, for example)
  • Sleds must be free of sharp or pointy objects.
  • All parts, pieces and accessories must be taken with you when you leave
