I posted this at slednecks, but I just wanted to spread the joy to you guys.
Since I ride bmx, and if I want my bars higher, I just loosen the stem bolts, push the bars up, its the same concept with a sled.

I raised my bars about 3 inches this way. Go to the stem (holds the bars in) , loosen the bolts, and push the bars up, not only does it push them up, it pushes them more forward. My bars were practically in my lap, now they're perfect and they're forward making manuverability much better. I had 2 inch bar risers on my other sled, then I did this and it raised em about an 1 1/2 - 2 inches. Try it out its pretty cool, and easy to do.

Older Polaris sleds have a funny angled handlebar setup, and when rotated much foward, become very awkward to use. You can fit a 2" riser block under them and the throttle and brake lines just clear.

What brand and model of sled do you have?
Will this work on all 4/5 brands of sleds?
Sounds like a cheap fix.[:D]
