If you’re headed out for a winter vacation this year and will without-a-doubt miss your furry, four-legged friend you’ll be leaving behind, then it might be best to quell that loss on a day tour with one of the dog sledding companies in the Park City area.
Each company has teams of beautiful huskies and other arctic breeds, some rescue dogs, all chomping at the bit to drag a winter sled guided by professional racers from all over the world. Luna Lobos Dog Sledding, All Seasons Adventures, North Forty Escapes, and Destination Sports and Adventures are all located within a few minutes drive of Park City and all offer competitive rates and unlimited fun in the snow with human’s best friend.
For the Luna Lobos team, it’s all about family. Owners and operators, Dana and Fernando have been racing sled dogs all their life. They live just a few minutes from Park City in Peoa, UT where, with their four children (two of which are already racers as well!), they host so much more than just sled tours. You and a partner can pack into the sled and let the team tow you for a tour through the wooded backcountry of the Wasatch Mountains.
Back at the ranch, you’ll find dinner, lodging at a Backcountry Tent or Pueblo Cottage, mushing classes, obstacle courses, and more. You can also schedule private parties, kennel tours, and kids camps complete with storytelling and archery. A day with the Luna Lobos begins early and goes deep into the moonlit night.
Racer and Maren Gibson, from All Seasons Adventures, have been rescuing sled dogs from shelters for over a decade. While they were touring with these impressive animals in their free time, it became obvious that their pack was growing beyond capacity. The simple next step was sledding. These two mushers are masters of the backcountry here in Park City, and their skills behind the sled attest to it. Their philosophy is the dogs are first and foremost pets, it just so happens these canine athletes also love to run. Part of the deal is giving the dogs love. So when you return from your tour, these furry friends will have a line of loving licks coming your way.
