Umiak Outfitters was the booking agent for our 2 hour adventure with Cobble Hill Kennel. Seamless booking. Doug & Ben were our personable mushers. You can tell they love their dogs...we got to meet all of our team & a bit of history about dog sleds. Very much a hands on activity. My Sister & enjoyed every twist, turn, bump & scenery mostly on a well groomed snowmobile trail. The home stretch was the best. Such fun! Would have loved to go again & bet the dogs would agree. We loved every moment. Thanks Doug & Ben!

Had a wonderful time cross country skiing with our guide Daniel. He was very patient, fun, and knowledgeable. He really taught us a lot about it and it made the experience perfect! The service at Umiak renting the equipment was so easy and the entire staff was great. We really had an incredible time and highly recommend them. We look forward to doing it again! Thank you Daniel for planting yourself in front of the tree I was sliding into!😉

There were five of us on our cross-country ski adventure. We rented skis, boots, and poles from Umiak Outdoor Outfitters. Setting out on a sunny, cold afternoon, Daniel Jacobson brought us to Wiessner Woods. He patiently showed us how to balance on one ski, then the other giving us all the confidence we needed as we were new to the sport of cross country skiing. Under Daniel's supervision and directions, we got the hang of it and set out on this beautiful trail through the woods. Daniel seemed to be everywhere he needed to be as we all required some form of help during our fun adventure. Part of trying something new is enjoying the experience so you'll go back and try it again. Daniel made sure that we all had a great time. He left a possitive impression on all of us as we were laughing and skiing as beginners do. The memories created are ones that we will never forget as part of our Vermont vacation. I cannot say enough about Umiak and our expert guide, Daniel Jacobson (DJ). Thank you, DJ we all had a great time and can't wait to come back!
