Have you ever thought that you might want more than riding in the sled? Or even standing on the back with the guide? Do you wonder what it might be like from the beginning? Now is your chance to experience dog sledding like the pros. Starting in January, we will offer a two day total immersion dogsledding experience. The day starts with greeting and feeding the dogs, and cleaning up after them. While they digest their breakfast, we will go over the history of dog sledding and learn about the equipment . Then back to the dog yard to learn how to harness dogs into a team.
Next you and your team of 3 or 4 dogs will be turned loose on the trail around the dog farm to try your hand at running a team. The trail is a gentle but fun way to get the idea of what it is like to drive your own dogs.
Reservations are required. Participants must be at least 12yrs of age.
Two day total immersion $500/person
NEW ADVENTURES IN DOG SLEDDING!!
The second day we will start with the same feeding and cleaning up, but then we will go into the beautiful back country of Gunnison County to run the dogs over one of our longer trails.
These trips are for those who want to really experience dogs and dog sledding in all its aspects. A certain level of fitness is required. Lunch is provided both days.
