My wife and two kids ages 12 & 8 had a great time on our dog sledding adventure during spring break. We researched a few activities and decided on snow buddy tours, for 1 because we had never done one before, and we decided on snow buddy because of other fellow reviewers.
Reservations were made very easily over the phone, good communication and clear expectations were set for us.
Weather was lightly snowing as we left our condo in steamboat. Sara met us about 10 minutes away from the trail at an easy meeting spot, she greeted us all in a caring manner. Our spoiled rotten kids were already complaining about cold toes, and she immediately offered up some toewarmers.
Upon arriving at the trail, we met Sara's husband and were introduced to the dogs, all very well mannered dogs. We were taught to harness them, safety briefing for the trip and away we went.
The trip was incredible, We dog sledded through aspen trees, up, down and through winding trails for a few hours and never saw another soul - it felt like something out of a movie. Our kids that always have some sort of technology in their hands were actually smiling, they couldn't stop. My youngest tried to race the dog sled team on foot ( and lost ), Sara helped my oldest 12 year old son drive the sled down the hill, and my wife and I spent a few hours together without strangling each other. Halfway through, we stopped, and visited for a little bit at a cabin in the woods. You quickly come to realize that what makes the experience so great is the people that run it. They took their time to make sure we enjoyed ours, and that meant a lot- that along with their great dog teams, and their caring demeanor- we hope to revisit them with more family and friends over the years to come.
