Snowsled is a British company specialising in the design and manufacture of equipment for use in the Polar Regions. We also manufacture rescue equipment such as vacuum mattresses, casualty rescue bags and insulation pods. In addition to major Government and private expeditions the recreational community has seen the value of Snowsled gear and our customers now include skiers, hunters, ice fishers and just about anybody who travels in the Polar Regions or the back country in winter.
Snowsled was started in 1988 by Roger Daynes to manufacture Nansen Sleds for the British Antarctic Survey. Since that time we have supplied at least twelve National Antarctic and Arctic Research organisations as well as numerous private expeditions and recreational users. Our product range has increased to include pulk sleds which we make in fibreglass and Kevlar if required although our innovative HDPE plastic pulk systems are becoming ever more popular.
John Wright joined the Snowsled team in 2012 to lead our expansion into North America. Based to the South of Ottawa in Southern Ontario we stock the full range of Snowsled HDPE Pulks and accessories for distribution throughout North America. Other products are available by special order.
