Wherever there is snow, you will generally find people sledding down hills on anything they can find from a dustbin lid to a wooden sled. Tobogganing is the type of winter sport that anyone can enjoy: all you need is a sled, a raised piece of land and plenty of warm clothes. The first toboggans were used by the native tribes of Canada and Northeast America who used slim wooden boards to transport people and objects across snow-covered land but present times sees children and adults of all ages bombing down hills, enjoying the ride. .
