Grass Sledges
Grass Sledging is one of the most popular and fun activities at Bonaly. An activity for ages 8 plus, no special skills are required but you must observe the common sense safety rules detailed on the activity sheet provided by us. For the most thrilling ride the secret is not to apply the brakes too soon or too late! Possibly the most fun you can have on sledges without snow.
