Dog Sled Rides/Races
Ever wanted to race along a snowy trail feeling the power of a loyal team? Bring the whole family up to Grand County, Colorado for a truly exhilarating winter experience in dog sled racing and rides.
Do you dream of yelling “Mush!” to your team of huskies in the blinding snow while on the trail of the Iditarod? Why go to Alaska when you can come to Grand County for the perfect dog sled experience? Head over to Snow Mountain Ranch on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and live out a (scaled-down) version of your dream with the whole family!
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.
Visiting in the summer, and don't want to miss out? Now you don't have to. Snow Mountain Ranch offers "Hanging with the Huskies" during the summertime which allows you to meet a few of the dogs from their dog sled team and play with them in their three-acre dog park! Meet at the dog park, and continue the fun afterwards with an optional dog sledding craft in the Doak Room. You won't want to miss out on this unique experience available for overnight guests on Monday and Friday all summer long. Visit Snow Mountain Ranch's's website to learn more about summer experiences with the Huskies that power their dog sled team.
