How Do You Sled When Global Warming Means No Snow Outside?

An unseasonably warm winter has meant less snow on the ground. With no snow, how are we supposed to go sledding?

Seems like Polish designer Szymon Hanczar has a sledding solution for a warmed globe. We Never Give Up! is his updated version of a winter sled, reports Design Milk. Hint: It’s got wheels.

Not so long ago people in Poland used to take their sledges from the basements and take over all possible city hills. At that time snow still existed. As we are suffering from greenhouse effect and something like snow simply does not exist anymore, we are offering a brand- new, attractive and minimalist sledge, possible to use on all types of flat surfaces, sloping though. The sledge is more trendy than long board, and more stylish than roller-skates. Additionally, being a double vehicle, they offer you the possibility of integration. It’s an ideal option for vehicle owners. Ideally suited for parking lots, deserted streets and flats which were constructed by developers not knowing how to use spirit levels. The sledge develops an impressive speed. In any self- respecting apartment they can function as a prestigious mobile couch.

The sled’s wheels and steel bars almost resemble hospital beds, except We Never Give Up! (which would be a great mantra for patients) is clearly geared for people to have fun and recapture a bit of that childhood global warming is trying to take away. Never give up, Hanczar says.
