Hello Hilton Sno-Flyers My husband is selling his sled this year if anyone is looking to pick another one up or knows someone who is. It’s in mint condition..he just never gets to ride it. It’s basically BRAND NEW for the amount of times it’s been used. Give John a call if you’re interested, (585)305-0204.
