Fancy a sport where you bomb headfirst around sharp turns on an icy track with your legs flying behind you in the air? Then skeleton sledding is right up your street. More of a human torpedo than traditional sledging, this dangerous sport is not for the faint hearted. Attached to a skeleton sled, large enough only for one, the rider places their head just inches away from the icy track and holds onto the steel frame. There are no brakes and the rider has to rely on their body to steer around the curves of the course: hair-raising and exciting. .
