We are a family of 'dog people' so perhaps that elevated our enjoyment. This day could not have been any better. Such a unique experience in an incredible setting complete with the companionship with these beautiful animals. A Rocky Mountain gem!

The dog sled tours are available in the winter time usually from November to April. They have summer kennel tours available during summer months. The best way is to check directly on the snowy owl website
