Musher For A Minute – Learn How To Mush!
About: This is a 1.5 hour crash course in the art of mushing and is open to those ages 12+. This tour is geared towards guests who really want to get into the nuts and bolts of modern dog sledding.
Educational Component: Guests will spend 30 minutes covering all the details of what it takes to prepare the sled dogs and sled for the trail.
The Ride: Guests will hit the trail for approximately 5 miles/45 minutes (ride time may vary based on: the weights of the participants, trail conditions and the doggies pulling the sled). During this time guests will learn their Gees and Haws and practice the #1 rule of dog sledding, NEVER LET GO, with the assistance of a musher for guest and dog safety of course!
Treats: As always, the mushers try to leave some time at the end for guests to share treats with the sled dogs, get photos and give belly rubs.
