Is there an age limit?

There is no age limit, though we do recommend bundling up younger kids as it can be pretty chilly somedays.

Do the Dogs like their Job?

We're certain they do! These guys are innate pullers, they love their work and they love to meet people. Come see for yourself how crazy these dogs are to pull.

What should I wear?

Warm clothes! You will spend at least and hour and fifteen minutes outside so you’ll probably want snowpants, boots, gloves, and a hat. We do have some extra warm gear that you may borrow (but we don’t have pants or many boots).

How many people can go on a tour?

We can take up to about 1000 pounds on a tour. That weight is split between two sleds. If you have more than that, we’d be happy to set you up with two tour times to accommodate your group.

How many dogs pull the sled?

Teams range anywhere from 8 to 14 dogs depending on snow conditions and on how much weight they’re pulling.

Why are the tours expensive?

The proper food, care, training, housing and vet costs for 35 dogs is not cheap, and of course these guys deserve the best!  And they also need all this year round.
