The Extended Tour
A bit longer at three hours, this is for the diehards who yearn for a more extensive exploration of the trails, passes, and backcountry. This tour leaves once daily at 9am. Call for pricing and availability.
Handling Happy Huskies
This beautiful video provides a good taste of the interactive experience guests enjoy while running an eager team of Siberian Huskies on the trails:
Good Times’ winter dog sledding trip is one hour and 6 miles of full tilt fun for up to six guests who engage in a relay of sorts through the Swan River Valley. Take turns running the dogs, riding in the dogsled, and joining the guide on the smaller sleigh. You can grab some thrilling photos and videos of your Rocky Mountain tour. $90 adults, $50 children age 8 and under.
The Dogs of Summer
The Husky fun does not stop when the snow is gone! Longtime partner of Good Times, Snow Caps Sled Dogs, offers several ways to interact with their 150+ dogs and learn about mushing.
Take a 45-minute guided tour of the kennel with time for dog and puppy petting and an intro to sledding without actually getting in the sled. $25 per person, ages 3 and over.
Spend an hour and a half meeting the dogs and learning about the sport and kennel operations. Follow up with a team of Huskies pulling you in a cart on dry land. $65 adults, $45 children age 3 and over.
For those coordinated folks who are in good shape, here’s a chance to ride through Swan Valley with a pair of sled dogs pulling you on a scooter. Experienced bikers preferred! Approximately 90 minutes. $75 per person, ages 16 and over.
Snow Caps Dog Classes
Bring your own dog to “bikejoring” class where he will be harnessed and paired up with a lead Husky for three hours of trail riding. What a great opportunity to blow off some August steam for high energy, athletic and working dogs.
