We live the next town over from Lidia & Richard and their Valley Snow Dogz. When you live in a tourist-oriented region, you sometimes forget about the fun activities and scenic locations that are practically in your own backyard. So, last night I treated my daughter and son (ages 21 & 24) and my son's girlfriend (age 23) to a sled dog ride in Waterville Valley. Our hosts, Lidia & Richard Dale-Mesaros, are awesome. From introducing you to their beautiful, friendly dogs, to explaining how they care for, train, and work the dogs...to taking you on an exhilarating ride into the forest at night, to serving you hot cider and delicious homemade cookies...Lidia and Richard are kind and caring hosts. (And I can't forget to acknowledge the other mushers, twin sisters, Kim and Kelly Berg!) The Valley Snow Dogz experience is equal parts exhilarating fun and educational. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND a sled dog ride with the Valley Snow Dogz team! We did the "Mountain Taster." We paid at the Town Square Condominium Check-in office and met the mushers at the base of Tripoli Road (which is closed to cars in winter). You ride in a sled with a blanket (but definitely dress appropriately for the weather!) up Tripoli Road to the Osceola Vista Campground. The return trip is really exciting with the dog team getting up to 20mph! What a unique adventure! Thank you Valley Snow Dogz!
