Banff Dogsledding

Personal Blog Post | Banff Dogsledding


In honour of the cold snap that's come to visit us, I thought I'd post about my dogsledding trip last winter. Last winter, I know I'm sorry! There's just been so many wonderful sessions I wanted to blog! 

Last February, my family and I drove down to Banff to go on a dogsledding tour. They trucked us up a mountain, almost as far as you can go by car, to a frozen lake. The dogs were waiting for us there all hooked up and ready to go! If you're looking at the images and thinking hey these aren't huskies! They are! They're just Alaskan Huskies, not the typical large fluffy dogs we associate with the breed. The dogs were so excited to get going they couldn't sit still the until we left. 

Once on the lake, the conditions changed from a mild snowstorm to whiteout conditions. These pups knew their trails so well they took us the full length of the ride and safely back home. I would hole heartedly recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different to do in the mountains! Go have a look at some of the pictures I took! 

Stay warm!
