Thank you Wintergreen for the wonderful resort experience. We truly had a great time. The scenery was beautiful, the food fantastic, the company so enjoyable and, of course, the sled doggies! –such loving, strong, energetic, devoted, tenacious bundles of furry life – thank you for taking us into your world. We loved it! We are also feeling smarter, for the... More

My extended family recently spent a week at Wintergreen as part of a reunion of sorts. We had a fantastic stay in a place that suited us perfectly. The lodge is a little eclectic, and it's not a fancy place... but it was very clean, very well appointed, and run by two of the nicest people you will ever meet.... More

This was by far one of the best trips my husband and I have taken. We had so much fun! I am not a big skier but we wanted to do a winter vacation that was action packed. This was it! Our guide Dave was incredible. He has been doing this for a while now and was an amazing guide.... More

This is a definite outdoor adventure,and on that note exceptional. We went with high expectations of a new outdoor adventure and were not at all disappointed with that aspect of it. The lodge and chef part were a non item for us on this trip, and a bit over hyped in our experience. We got farmed out to another resort... More

Sitting back at my desk my 1st day back from my Wintergreen dogsledding camping trip and finding it difficult to keep the great memories of the outing from interfering with my duties. Seems like I should be packing the sled and harnessing up the dogs about now instead of this! Cannot say enough good things about Wintergreen's operation. Our guides... More

My daughter asked me for an adventure for Christmas and we went to Wintergreen for dogsledding. We've been home for 3 days and I can't stop thinking or talking about the trip. When I think of the memories we made I just smile. Our guides, Max, Jacob and Goose we're fantastic. They truly enjoy their jobs and made it special... More

Our family is looking forward to our third Wintergreen Dogsled Vacation this 2014 snow season. Our three kids (7, 9 & 13) tell us it's the most fun they've ever had! They're especially looking forward to helping train in the yearling sled dogs that were born when we were there last year and to meeting Belle's 6 new pups born... More

The total experience was awesome. The dogs, the sledding, our guides, the food, the lodging, and the other guests who stayed at our cabin made the whole experience great. To see how pulling sleds is so engrained in the dogs was truly impressive. Their howling and singing that they broke into every time we approached them could be heard across... More

My husband's 50th birthday was coming up and I surprised him with a 4 night "best" dogsledding lodge based package. We have Siberian huskies so we were excited to see Paul Schurke's Canadian Inuit dogs in action. His dogsledding tour was rated on National Geographic's 2012 Ultimate Adventure Bucket List. I can't recommend these guys highly enough. They make sure... More

Mere words can not describe the experience. The smell, comraderie, excitement and sound of the dogs is electrifying and addictive. And this is said by someone who really does not like dogs. I came alone on the first trip of the year for the 4-day lodge to lodge trip and had a wonderful time. The food is excellent. You can... More
