West Lothian has been enjoying the winter snow for the past few weeks now (when will it disappear!!?), and so I thought I would put a post up about some of the cool snow sledges you can get for some fun winter family times with your kids. Don’t get me wrong I do like the snow…but only to look at! Driving in it is another story! Anyway, it is providing much fun and entertainment for the kids and the snow sledges I have had in the cupboard have come in very useful. I have certainly had my money’s worth out of them and they are still going strong!

If anyone has any favourite places to go sledging with kids in West Lothian, please let me know and I will do another post so West Lothian families can find them and enjoy them too for the winter period!

Guide To THE Best Sledges For Winter Weather

Snow Wedges/Snow Seats

These snow wedges/sit on snow seats look great for kids, although I have seen adults using them too. Personally, I don’t think I would feel safe on one but they are very popular and come in a range of colours and prices do vary.


Standard snow sledges which range from your basic plastic snow sledges to the more sturdy plastic snow sledges with handles.

Snow Scooter

I’m not too sure I would be able to stand up on these, but I suppose they are the stage before a snowboard? Don’t quote me on that but they certainly do look very cool.

Winter Fun – Extreme Fun

I was so tempted to buy one of these! They look so much fun and could see them being so much fun for the whole family.

Inflatable Snow Tubes

I have never seen any of these out on the hills and I’m not sure how long they would last. However, they look so much fun and can see you picking up some amount of speed on them.

Do any of these tempt you into some family fun in the snow? Some of these look absolutely amazing, and we have definitely been enjoying getting outdoors and having that family quality time.

If like us, you need to take your dog(s) along for the family fun, then here are tips for walking your dog in cold weather.
