Dog Sledding in Steamboat Springs If you’ve ever felt inspired by the Iditarod races, now is your chance to race over the snow in a sleek sled pulled by an elite pack of dogs. Get out and enjoy a true winter wonderland experience with Grizzle-T Dog & Sled Works by learning how to drive a team of sled dogs or by simply sitting back and enjoying the ride.
If you choose the West Trail experience, you will have a half-day adventure learning how to drive your own team of Alaskan Huskies. With snow gently blanketing the earth and trees, you will have a hands-on experience gliding across 12.5 miles of scenic backcountry trails. Sleds typically accommodate two adults. If you are both interested in trying your hand at driving the team, switching positions halfway is an option. Tours run every day starting the week of Thanksgiving, as long as there is enough snow, and continue through the first week of April. Regular pricing is $200 per adult, $120 per child, and $45 per lap child. Separate peak season pricing applies for December 22 – January 5. Children must be at least two to join this tour.
Make all of your Iditarod dreams come true by joining Iditarod Musher Tom Thurston and his dogs at Double T Kennel for the South Trail tour. Learn from this experienced musher and hear tales of his Iditarod experiences by choosing the “Drive Your Own Team” tour. If you’d rather sit back, relax, and enjoy the winter landscape scenery, a “Guide Driven” tour is also an option. Both South Trail tours travel along the shores of Stagecoach Reservoir on an 8-mile trail. Pricing to drive your own team is the same as on the West Trail. Guide driven tours are $415 per sled, and the number of people per sled depends on total weight.
