What is Sledder

Sledding as we know it now began in the mid-to-late 1800s in St Mortiz, Switzerland. It was discovered when rich tourists converted delivery sleds for recreational racing. Sleds were typically produced in places with a lot of winter snow and used to move people and things. In 2002, the thrilling sport was included in the winter Olympic Games.
