My husband and I and one other couple took the scenic sleigh ride @ 6PM. The location was convenient to the town of Breckenridge. Our guide was kind and accomodating. Hot chocolate we fixed ourselves in the shed was warm and tasty. The rest of the experience was nothing but disappointing for all 4 of us.....The sleigh ride was simply a zigzag trek up ski slope 9...if you ski, you have traveled this trek several times already. The sleigh benches are facing to each side, making it very difficult to see the only interesting sight which is the town of Breckinridge at the bottom of the slope. The horses slowly trudge at best and stop every few minutes or so to rest due to the altitude. There is never a thought of a trot or gallop until you reach the little bump by the cabin. (2 seconds). While we did not (thank goodness) book the dinner ride...we DID pass the little bitty cabin where it was held..again, right on the side of the ski slope. If you are envisioning "dashing thru the snow, in a one horse open sleigh" STAY AWAY From this experience. TRY DOGSLEDDING with Nordic Sleigh Rides......MUCH more FUN!

Friendly knowledgable workers. Informative, answered all questions. Horses were very well cared for, very healthy. Comfortable ride, not too long not too short. Perfect for couples, maybe a little pricey for family.
Absolutely recommend!

I made a reservation for 16 people (family members who had traveled in for my wedding) and we did the sleigh ride with the dinner. The drivers were friendly, the food was good, the live musician (guitarist) was great. They have hot chocolate and heavy blankets to keep you warm on the ride. Also got a 10% group discount. Expensive but the experience was worth it.

The wranglers were friendly and knowledgeable. It was a nice quiet ride at 5pm twilight time. I have taken other sleigh rides near frisco and this one up the ski hill beats the view.
