With the gorgeous backdrop scenery of
Waterville Valley, our sled dogs will provide a
unique and unforgettable experience of running the
trails by dog team. Nestled in the White
Mountains, Waterville Valley has experienced sled
dogs many times over from teams that ran the valley
floor back when the old Hotel was in existence, to
the many years of Santa being brought in by dog team
along with several races which we also organized at
Waterville Valley just a few years ago.
How wonderful for the town to embrace our sled dogs
and to welcome us as part of the many activities
that can now be enjoyed by skiers, boarders, nordic
skiers, town folk, locals from surrounding areas as
well as the many visitors from Boston, New York,
Canada and abroad. We so look forward to
giving everyone a taste of mushing, experiencing
life on the runners of hand crafted sleds and most
of all, the love and joy of life with sled dogs.
