I made two of these a couple of years ago from birch and baltic birch plywood. plastic runners were added after. They fold up and are great for touring the country.

A person stands on one of the runners and propels themselves forward by kicking. The sled is steered by twisting on the handle bars. A passenger can be carried on the seat or it can be used to carry groceries gear etc. Popular in Nordic Countries. There are examples of them in use on videos on Youtube. Seat can be used for sitting on when ice fishing.

The skis can be removed and the runners used on ice surfaces like skate blades.
