When you arrive it's not very clear where to go. You kind of just have to flag someone down and let them know you are there for dog sledding. They will take you to a little shack full of winter gear where you will have the opportunity to put on additional winter gear (boots, snow-pants, mittens, hats, etc).
From there you see the dogs and get your sled set up. The guide gives you some pointers and then you are off. The guide goes with you in his own dog sled and stays ahead of you at all times. We followed in a separate sled with one person driving and one person sitting in the sled. Although our dogs looked small they were fast! We were amazed at how fast we went. At first I felt bad for the dogs but they were clearly having a blast and would only get rowdy if you made them stop running. It was funny to see them biting the snow around them as they ran (I guess they were thirsty!).
The dogs are super strong so if you're little using your weight to tell them to stop the sled is more of a suggestion than a command. However, as long as you stay behind your guide you'll be fine. The dogs know the path really well and it seemed like they were mainly just chasing after the sled in front of them.
If you have multiple people make sure to tell your guide that you both want a chance to drive the sled. Our guide helped us stop and switch places so we both had a turn. We also gave him my camera for the last few minutes of the ride and he got some great shots of us driving the sleigh, which was really nice of him.
After the dog sledding we took advantage of the snow shoeing and tubing, which are included in the price. Those aren't organized activities. You just go find the snow shoes and take off on a trail. You'll eventually come to the tubing area. Make sure to look around before going down the tubing hill since you'll fly across the path where the dog sleds come through.
This was definitely a fun way to spend the afternoon!
