Owner description: Horse drawn sleigh ride 2 miles south of Leavenworth. Comes complete with good old fashioned hospitality, complimentary drinks and cookies, and sleigh bells. Warm hospitality area, route is through a big snowy meadow and along the Icicle River and under ponderosa pine trees. Operated by, award winning, Icicle Outfitters & Guides.

The place was easy to find, the guide’s were nice and funny, the horses and sleighs were decorated but the ride was kind of boring. The route was two big circles and that was it. It was kind of pricy considering we saw the same stuff just walking and driving around.

Loved the service and e mails from Dale prior to our trip. He was most helpful regarding the sleigh ride, snow cover and provided the weather forecast for the upcoming weekend. The ride was 1/2 hour, the driver was friendly and the sleighs were decorated nicely. The horses are well cared for. I would recommend highly

The route covers a variety of sceneries, all of which are beautiful. The drivers (wranglers) are a lot of fun, and complimentary hot cider at the halfway point is a treat. The ridiculously all-inclusive legal release form and requirement to provide personal information including medications and next of kin phone number started me out on a sour note, but I soon recovered and the experience itself was nothing short of awesome.

You don't get to see anything interesting on this ride. The landscape we see consists of snow, trees and sleeping lady mountain in the background. There are places where you see the river on one side but you cant get down. After about 5 minutes we were bored and just wanted the tour to end.
You can get similar view from almost anywhere in Leavenworth. I suggest a walk through the waterfront park rather than waste time and money doing this.

Before heading home from our recent trip to Leavenworth, we stopped to enjoy a sleigh ride with Icicle Outfitters. I originally planned to use Eagle Creek Ranch, since they were closer to our rental cabin, but they were closed the days we were in town. So, I chose Icicle Outfitters at the last minute and we couldn't have been happier. I would have opted for a private two person sleigh if it hadn't been a last minute decision, but we shared a large sleigh with another family and all had a good time.

The ride lasts about 30 minutes and takes a couple of meandering loops through the fields and trees. I had imagined something closer to a snow covered road, through the trees and along a river. Something like the local icicle river road where we snowshoed. But, the scenery was still beautiful including a short section next to the icicle river. It's also a lot more peaceful on their private land, and by grooming the trail periodically the ride stays smooth despite repeated sleigh rides.

We enjoyed hanging out with the real cowboy's, and shared hot cocoa after the ride in their heated tents. We had a great time and highly recommend Icicle Outfitters.
