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.
Winter Dog Sled Rides are rides where the customers sit in a dog sled, our professional guides drive the sled, and the dogs pull the sled on our private trail system. They are usually available from about Thanksgiving to Easter. The opening and closing dates are determined by weather, and there is nothing we can do to change that. Dog powered cart rides available when there is not enough snow for sleds. Kennel tours are also available spring through fall.
