Alpine slides are a thrilling way to explore downhill slopes. This activity is perfect for those who are looking for an adrenaline rush. When it comes to safety, alpine slides have many measures in place to ensure a safe and fun ride. The brakes can be adjusted to the rider’s desired speed, while the track is designed to reduce any potential injury. For those looking for a competitive race however, you are welcome to not use the brakes so much!
The AlpineSlide.com crew have suffered several scrapped knees as a result of hurling their sled around a high banked corner. Knee pads would look goofy and might draw attention from the alpine slide staff but are highly recommended for those wanting to race to the bottom of the course.
Be sure to ask the facility if racing is permitted. Also, do not operate an alpine slide sled at any speed if you are under the influence of alcohol.
