What to Wear
Clothing must provide protection from both the cold and the wind. Bring several layers for warmth. Make sure you have sufficient clothing to cover all exposed skin.
You will need:
- Insulated boots with thick wool or synthetic socks
- Warm gloves with a nylon shell
- A scarf or face mask
- A warm hat
- Nylon pants and jacket to keep the wind out
- Several layers for warmth (Synthetic clothing will keep you warm, even as you perspire. Avoid cotton, as it will not keep you warm when it becomes wet.)
- A Camera and extra batteries are ALWAYS useful!
- Extra cash for guide gratuity (they work very hard to ensure a safe and exciting trip); as in most guided outdoor experiences, your musher relies on tips as part of his/her daily pay.
Safety Policies and Restrictions
- A weight limit of 325 pounds per sled is strictly enforced.
- Children under age 2 may not ride in a sled. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult.
