“Fun! I think the dogs enjoyed it as much as the people did.”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

This was my first time dog sledding and it was a very fun thing to do. We did the four hour trip. The dogs are great and Wolfsong really makes sure you get a lot of time to interact with the dogs, from helping load them into the vehicle you take out to the trail, feeding and watering them and putting their harnesses on. We were out on the trail about two hours, including a 30-45 minute lunch break. Each person gets his or her own sled to run, which has a team of 4-6 dogs. There is a guide on the front sled and the back sled, and the dogs chase the sled in front of them (each sled is 50-100 feet apart usually), so you don't have give commands or anything. When I was there, they had seven sleds including 2 for the guides, and five for the participants. One person can sit in the sled if they want (there was a little girl sitting in one of the sleds in our group), but the best thing is to run your own sled. It was really quite easy to handle. The video on thier website is very accurate and was descriptive of what this entails.

Wolfsong was able to provide a lot of good cold-weather gear, including boots, "musher mitts" and gloves, and snowsuits. I had my own gear, but used a pair of the musher mitts they provided, and brought a backpack with water and extra cold weather clothes. Using a camera was tricky while the sled was going, since you need to hold on to the sled at all times, but I got a few good shots while it was going.

One of the neat things was how excited the dogs were. They were extrememly friendly and obviously very used to a lot different people. You could tell that they just really loved to run and were jumping up from their harnesses before we got going. It's nothing like the cartoons where there's a guy with a whip yelling "mush!".
