The Dog Sled
A sled fits two people or 375 pounds comfortably and the price is $375 PER SLED.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 lap child in a sled.It is uncomforatbale and damages the equipment when the sled is overloaded.If the sled is overloaded,we reserve the right to ask someone to stay behind.
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 60 minutes or less of downtown Durango and you will receive a text the evening before the trip with directions. If you do not hear from us by 7pm, we may not have correct contact info so please call us.
Tours last approximately two hours, depending on snow conditions. It is important to be on time, but you do not need to arrive early as we may be out on the trail.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. This is a cold weather activity so dress accordingly. We have a photographer on site to capture it all and purchasing a disc with the all the photos is totally up to you! 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.
