Title: Snow-brake for sled

Abstract: A sled for sliding on a sliding surface has a hull with bow and stern ends, a side portion extending therebetween, and a bottom surface for contacting the sliding surface. A snow-brake integral with the hull is formed from a portion of the hull that extends outward from the hull and downward part-way to the bottom surface. The snow-brake forms a scoop for engaging the sliding surface when an angle between the hull and the sliding surface exceeds a critical angle. The critical angle is selected such that the bottom surface contacts the sliding surface while the snow-brake engages the sliding surface.
