Detailed description of Dog Sledding Adventure in Bretton Woods:

Take in the spectacular winter scenery as you glide across our winter wonderland behind a powerful team of Alaskan Husky sled dogs. You'll experience nature as explorers have for hundreds of years. As they stretch out and attack the trail ahead of them, you'll enjoy the ride of a lifetime. It's amazing to watch these high-drive dogs do what they were bred to do. You'll be introduced to all aspects of modern dog sledding by your experienced mushers, including meeting the dog team, taking a ride with one or two of your friends or family members and maybe even driving the sled - just ask!

Notes:

  • Safety of the dogs is our first priority; we strictly enforce the weight limit of 340 pounds per sled, as well as a 3 person maximum per sled. This weight limit has taken into account the weight of the musher and gear.
  • Driving the sled is at the discretion of the musher, for your safety and for that of the dogs.
  • Minimum age for dog sled experiences is 3 years old
  • Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by a parent in the sled for all dog sled rides
  • Winter attire is absolutely necessary & all times are very approximate. Ride times vary wildly due to changing trail conditions and working with animals.
  • There is a two hour cancellation policy. Please arrive at the Activities Concierge, located in the Great Hall of the Mount Washington Hotel 20 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time. Guests more than 10 minutes late forfeit their spot and will be charged for the ride.

Dogs for Adoption

When a dog comes to our kennel it has a home for life. Most of our retired sled dogs wind up on our couch or going home with one of our mushers. While we'd like to keep them all, sometimes we know it's best for the dog to find them a spot next to a woodstove and an active family to be their new forever-family. Read more
