The dogs were wonderful and friendly. The ride was thrilling. Dress warm but they do have warmer clothing for you. The ride was a bit bumpy, but there's no way to sled through natural terrain without a few bumps. We will be back, for sure.

It's great tour! Nita and Shawn are super nice. The dogs are cute and friendly. We went through woods, up and down hills. It's quite nice. And Nita's house is way up high on the mountain. It has good view up there!
