We went to Winterdance over 10 years ago and absolutely loved the experience. We came back again to bring our kids because they are fascinated with Husky's. We had been to several dog sledding places over the years and nothing has compared to Winterdance. They take very good care of all of their dogs and can definitely pride themselves on... More

Our team of dogs were : Pheniox,Polar, Gillan, Winter, and Wayatt (race team dog). It was a very strong team, Winter and Gillan got in two... More

My sister and I had a wonderful adventure! I am happy we chose the half day tour, any less would have been too little time to enjoy, we would love to go back for a whole day next time! Winterdance was amazing all in all... since the reservation process, accurate directions, patient answers (I do ask a lot of questions),... More

We went sledding with our guide Ryan this week and I had the most amazing experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and the whole staff handled the dogs amazingly. I was impressed with the constant attention the dogs got and how loved they were by their trainers. We will definitely be going back!!

Went up to Winterdance on Saturday January 7th. We took an amazing 25 km journey through beautiful forested countryside. Scenery was spactacular. The Siberian Huskeys were beautiful. They were very friendly and loveable. Well taken care of. I highly recommend this adventure. We will definitely be back next year. Our guide was Mackie. Could not have asked for a better... More

Due to weather my husband and I missed the cutoff for the half-day tour but the staff were very accommodating and let us join the two-hour tour. Although dogsledding turned out to be harder than we anticipated we had an amazing time. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the whole experience and the location was beautiful. A half-day... More

What an experience! Signed up for a 1/2 day tour on a Wednesday starting at 1:30. Directions provided by Winterdance are the way to go, as GPS may be spotty and won't keep you on the best roads. This will also hopefully get you there on time. Leave extra time for driving! Our tour started relatively late due to waiting... More

My family and I decided to visit Winterdance for New Years Day and could not have been happier with our decision. The five of us participated in a 2 hour tour and thought that this was the perfect amount of time. Our tour ended up coming back in late but we did not mind at all, it gave us more... More

Me and my friend were there for a half day tour. The guides explained very well how to handle the sled and how to interact with the dogs. The more you pet and help the dogs in the hills (pushing / braking), the happier they are and the better they do there job. They want to know who they are... More
