WINTER SLED DOG TOURS

Choose Morning, Midday or Sunset

General Information

Reserve a Dog Sled

Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. We offer 2-3 trips per day and have four sleds available per time slot. If you have a large group (over 8)call for customization. The #of sleds field will show how many sleds are available. Once booked, you will receive a confirmation. We will send a TEXT to the number provided with instructions and directions between 4-7 the night before your scheduled trip.This is a family friendly activity and all ages are welcome.

The Dog Sled

A sled fits two people or 375 pounds comfortably. Every sled has a guide on it. We can sometimes fit a lap child if under the weight limit but we do not put more than 2 adults and a small child or 3 smaller children in one sled. 

Meeting Place

Tours leave from our base camp kennel either at our Ranch in Hesperus, Trails in Mancos, or at Molas Pass. We choose the best trails for the trip. All trails are within 30 minutes or less of downtown Durango

Timing

Tours last approximately two hours, depending on snow conditions. You will get a mushing lesson before getting on the sled, and you will finish with a hot chocolate after mingling with your dogs and giving them treats.

What to Wear

Dress in layers and snow boots, hats, gloves and a smile. We have a photographer on site to capture it all. Trails are all above 8.000 feet so wear sunscreen. We go in ALL conditions (snow or no snow!) so be prepared for all weather.
