Luge and Yooner : Another vision of the glide
Tobogganing is an ancestral sliding practice: seated on this "vehicle" equipped with brakes, young and old alike take pleasure in hurtling down the snowy slopes. More and more, some ski resorts are even dedicating ski slopes entirely to sledging: ideal for your family holidays in the mountains. Sleds for babies, children and adults, there is something for everyone.
The little brother of the paret, the yooner is a hybrid gliding machine, halfway between sledding and skiing. Made up of a seat, a shock absorber and a runner, it allows you to keep contact with the ground as your legs and feet stay in contact with the snow. A real invitation to glide: light, easy to handle and very comfortable! It can be used on the piste in the evening, after a day's skiing. Sitting on the yooner at 20 cm from the ground, we cut the curves.
