Well, it’s official… we LOVE sand sledding! If you are planning a trip out west, I definitely recommend you buy or rent sleds or boards and try it out.


In New Mexico, we spent several days exploring White Sands National Monument. The white gypsum sand was so beautiful. We bought plastic sleds at Walmart, which was cheaper than renting them at the gift store. I DO recommended buying wax. We bought a few little cubes at the gift shop. The wax helps the sleds move down the sand faster. We decided to get a little crazy and brought out the kayaks. SO MUCH FUN!
