let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I have seen these around, but I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about whether they could really be any better than a regular sled.  The boys and I decided to take them to the slopes to see if how they would do...

We actually had to head up to Park City (about a 20 minute drive) so that we could find some good "testing" snow.  The boys could hardly wait to get to the top of the hill and go for you can see, they gave the Zipfy 2 thumbs up!

Taken directly from the Zipfy website:

"Zipfy is a lightweight, compact snow sled that makes for an exhilarating downhill ride.
Zipfy is incredibly safe - to stop simply drop your heels to slow down or come to a complete stop. Zipfy is also very maneuverable - you can steer by leaning into the side and carve down the hill.
Zipfy is the must-have item for anyone who loves to play in the snow, engineered for all ages making it the perfect family fun sport!

I have an eight year-old daughter who just loves snow. She will go out to the front yard and just make a small pile of snow so she can slide down it. She would be thrilled to have one of these. :)
