DOG SLED TOURS
Dog Sled Rides of Winter Park has 80 Siberian and
Alaskan huskies. During the winter, the dogs pull
sleds in the forests near Winter Park. They love
their job and can't wait until we have enough snow
to take out guests.
On the ride, we can accommodate one, two or three
guests in each sled. We have a weight limit of 350
pounds (158.7 kilograms, 25 stones) for the total
weight of all guests in the same sled. There is also
a maximum height restriction of 48 inches (4 feet,
1.21 meters) on the third person. For example, a
mother, father and child can all ride in the same
sled only if their combined weight is 350 pounds or
less and the child is less than 48 inches tall.
During the ride, all passengers remain in the
sled as the experienced musher expertly guides the
sled down the trail. Along the way, the guide will
point out any wildlife tracks (or actual wildlife
such as moose and coyotes), take pictures for the
guests and answer any questions about dogsledding or
local history, attractions and activities.
The trip covers about four or five miles in about
45 minutes. The trails are situated on private
property and we cannot allow guests to walk or ski
on the trails. We get to see some amazing views
along the way including 13 thousand foot peaks, the
Continental Divide, Winter Park Ski Resort, and of
course lots of snow.
