Backcountry Sledding at Mount Baker - March 9, 2013
After a complete lack of lowland snow this winter, we decided to head up to Mount Baker to do some backcountry sledding. The new Mountain Boy Slalom sleds worked great! I loved having the maneuverability of the of the classic steel runner Flexible Flyer sleds in the fresh snow. The Rush Snowtube is awesome too! Good sleds are the only way to go.I guess there are a few different "unofficial" sledding areas. Since I hadn't been sledding at Mt Baker before, it took us a bit to figure out where to go. You just have to follow the one-way around to the end, and hop over the snow birm. The Highwood Lake basin creates an awesome little bowl for sledding. The slopes range from mild to wild. We picked a pretty mellow spot and made a perfect day of it.

World's Longest Sled Run (Rodelbahn)
09:46 min | 50,777 views

Hi everyone, click more info to find out more about the sled run! Thanks for all of your comments, I will try and answer a few questions... The run is 14km long and it winds down a mountain side from one town (Neukirchen) to another (Bramberg). On the website: http://www.urlaubsarena-wildkogel.at/Tobogganing.210.0.html?&L=1 it says that it takes between 30 and 50 minutes to complete, however my brother and I have done it in 20 minutes (that means no stops for beer on the way down). There are 3 pubs along the sled run, one at the top, one in the middle and one at the bottom, the more you drink, the faster you go*! (*Drink at your own risk, it can be dangerous - don't drink and sled). All of the people in this video loved it so much that we are going again in 2 weeks time. We made this video by accident, so this time around we will try and make a better video - suggestions are welcome! Thanks again for watching and please rate the video, share the love, send this to your friends and family and I might see you on the slopes.
