About Mountain Boy Sledworks

Founded in 2002 by woodworker and self-proclaimed sledding fanatic Brice Hoskin, Mountain Boy Sledworks has grown to be the United States’ premier maker of handmade wooden sleds.  In 2012, Jen and Rick Hitzemann fell in love with Mountain Boy.  Combining their deep love of winter sports, woodworking and the Colorado mountains, they have taken over operations and continue to build upon the great Mountain Boy tradition.   Mountain Boy is still based in Colorado where sledding is a way of life!

Our Environmental Commitment

 We are working hard to minimize the impact of all of our operations on the environment. Some key elements include:

  • Using only frustration-free, recycled cardboard packaging

  • Choosing only fast-growing, common, sustainable hardwoods such as birch, willow and maple

  • Ensuring that every part of the wood is used. Smaller pieces are turned into kicksled slats or Christmas ornaments, and the smallest bits end up in our woodstove or in the wood-drying kiln.

  • Just as important, making products that last! We think it makes sense to buy a sled (or wagon or push cart) that will last for years, rather than buying a cheaper sled that won’t last nearly as long.


Toy Safety

All of our products are tested to meet CPSIA, ASTM, USC and European CE standards. For our Certificate of Compliance, click here.
