Sledding came to America in the 1860s when a man named Henry Morton invented the wooden toboggan. Since then, sleds have evolved into many different shapes and styles. There are six different categories of sleds: foam sleds, runner sleds, toboggans, disks, tube/inflatable sleds and backcountry sleds.
