The most revered prize of the past 26 years of U.S. National Toboggan Championships is to win first place in the 4-person division. The division has twice as many teams as the other two combined, and has twice as many teams in the finals, based on fastest times. No matter which division you’re in, everybody goes down the same 400-foot-long wooden chute, some close to 40 mph, ending your ride on frozen Hosmer Pond! (Photo by Dave Ridley)

Good form helps earn a good time, that is if cold weather is on your side. Teams that have competed year after year are constantly trying to perfect their form, their sled design, the coating they apply to their toboggan the night before and sometimes, just moments before entering the chute. Toboggan Nationals are a ton of fun, but this is also a serious competition for both bragging rights and coveted handmade mahogany trophies. Come out and race with us!
