** New For Winter 2016/17 **
About: This 2 hour crash course in the art of mushing is open to those ages 12+ and is geared towards guests who really want to get into the nuts and bolts of modern dog sledding.
Educational Component: Guests will spend 30-40 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 using a double driver sled (which is kind of like the dog sledding version of a driver’s ed car) for approximately 50-75 minutes. 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, we leave some time at the end for guests to share treats with the sled dogs, get photos and give belly rubs.
Availability: This tour departs most Tuesdays – Sundays starting mid-December and goes until the end of March (trail conditions permitting). There are a few holiday and vacation week exceptions. This tour departs at 9:30am, 12:00pm and 3:00pm. Reservations are required.
- $375 per sled (2 guests/340lbs)
Please Note: We have 1 double driver sled and are therefore only able to accommodate 1-2 guests per time-slot for this adventure. Also please note that while we are typically on winter sleds from the end of December until mid-March, your musher may use a rolling dog sleds to conduct your tour if trail conditions permit. Refunds WILL NOT be issued in the event that trail conditions require use of a rolling dog sled.
