sledging?

I have a follow-up question to the recent conversation about sled/sledge/sledge. I am from the US and have only seen the word sledge used in conjunction with hammer, but apparently kids in England use them to ride down snowy hills. My question is this: in the US we use the word "sled" as both noun and verb ("I go sledding on my sled." "I love to sled!" etc). Can sledge be used this way? Do kids in England go "sledging"?
