Why go to Alaska when you can come to Grand County for the perfect dog sled experience? Dog Sled Rides of Winter Park has 80 Sibeaian and Alaskan huskies, and you can hitch a 45-minute ride with a team of them. At Snow Mountain Ranch, a standard ride with their team of Alaskan huskies runs over a 2-mile trail that winds through open meadows with nothing distracting from the unbeatable views of the Rocky Mountains besides the soft padding of the huskies' feet. Grab the whole family, wrap up in wool blankets, and “mush!” your way across the snow for a unique Rocky Mountain experience you won't soon forget.
