A man rides on a sled pulled by several sled dogs over the snow

Dogsledding in Colorado is a feast for the senses: the wind whipping against your face, barking dogs eagerly speeding you along the trail, you at the helm shouting “mush!”

Within moments of embarking on your dogsledding expedition, you’ll be thrown back to the Call of the Wild on a Jack London-style journey through evergreen forests and wide-open snowy meadows.

Imagine you and another passenger, seated in a simple wooden frame, bundled snuggly in soft blankets, watching as the scenery runs by thanks to 10 to 12 well-trained dogs effortlessly pulling your sled across a snowy landscape. This is a snapshot into the smooth and timeless sport of Colorado dogsledding.
