Cosmic Cruisers offers family friendly dog sled tours in Gunnison County. They are situated just a short drive from Crested Butte Mountain Resort
Choose between an all day and short tours, which run daily from November through April. Qualified instructors teach the basics of mushing and how to run a team of eager huskies in the Colorado wild. It’s a great way to spend time away from CB’s ski slopes.
All Day Tour
Tours are guided by Lisa and Dave Mapes. All days tours depart the Gunnison National Forest in the morning and return around 3 or 4pm. Lunch is taken care of. About 8-12 Alaskan Huskies do the pulling, which leads to 11,000 feet. Sled time is about 2.5 hours.
The short tour is only minutes from Crested Butte. It lasts between 40 and 60 minutes on the sled. You have the option of a guided tour, where you relax on the sled. Or one will you run your own team, with all instructions given. You’ll run a team of 4 to 5 dogs.
