Have you ever wanted to ride on a sled sliding over snow behind a team of eager huskies? Just half-an-hour south of Lake Tahoe on Highway 88, stands a vast, uncluttered valley. Hope Valley has remained unchanged since Snowshoe Thompson skied it in the 1850's. It's a good place for a dog sled ride since it's a bit reminiscent of the Alaska interior. Preparation for the Sled Dog season is a year long commitment. In the fall we spend many hours getting the teams trained and conditioned using a three wheeled cart over dirt roads. We train until there is enough snow in hope valley to start the tours. Join 30-year veteran mushers David Beck and Dotty Dennis and their dogs for an exciting and memorable winter adventure. The rides last about an hour - depending on how fast the track is. We have sleds available with a load limit of 375 pounds each. Two adult size people and one or two small children.
