Who Can Participate:
- We welcome those ages 2+ for kennel tours and dog sledding adventures
- All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
- Participants who are pregnant are not permitted to participate
- Participants who have recently sustained an injury or undergone surgery may not participate
What We Recommend You Wear During The Winter:
- A warm winter jacket that is water/weather resistant
- Snow pants
- Insulated winter boots with thick wool or synthetic socks (please avoid Uggs and cotton as they will not keep your feet warm when wet)
- Winter gloves that are water/weather resistant
- Goggles and/or sunglasses
- A scarf or facemask
- A warm hat
- Extra layers for warmth like pullovers and long johns (avoid cotton as it will not keep you warm when wet)
- Air-activated hand and foot warmers
- “Yak Traks” or grips to put on the bottom of your boots
- A headlamp and/or flashlight to help navigate the kennel is a must for those you joining us for an evening run
What We Recommend You Wear During The Warmer Months:
- Closed-toed shoes are a must! Old sneakers, hiking shoes and rain/mud boots are all good footwear options. Flip flops, Crocs and sandals are not permitted.
- Long pants are recommended even on warmer days since the sled dogs love to jump up and say hi!
- A poncho or rain jacket are nice on wet/rainy days
- A sweatshirt or jacket in case you get chilly
Please Keep In Mind:
- That our facility is completely outdoors and we do not have a changing area
- We are home to several sled dogs that love to be pet
- Our activities are designed to be hands on to your comfort level
So … not only do you want to consider wearing the clothing recommended above, but you also want to consider wearing clothing that you don’t mind getting hairy and dirty if you want to be interactive and hands on!
What We Recommend You Bring:
- A camera and extra batteries are always useful
- Dog treats to reward the sled dogs for a job well done (just don’t feed the mushers). We encourage guests to bring the “biscuit” type of treats when possible vs. the meaty, jerky style treats.
- Gratuity for your musher (they work very hard to ensure you have a safe and exciting trip)
