Dog Sled & Horse-Drawn Sleigh Rides
Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime winter adventure as you learn the ropes of dog sledding through a winter wonderland. Or for a more mellow ride, get on a horse-drawn sleigh and listen to the clopping of hooves and jingle of bells as you travel through a wintery landscape. Either way, you’ll find it in Granby.
YMCA OF THE ROCKIES – SNOW MOUNTAIN RANCH
For either experience, Snow Mountain Ranch has you covered. They have a team of 20 hard-working sled dogs, each with their own unique personality. On the rides, guests are encouraged to develop personal connections with this special group of dogs, while also learning about leadership and outdoor education. Their dog sled rides are 30-40 minutes long, and anyone 10-years old and older is welcome to participate. Their lodging guests can make online reservations, and those not staying with them must call one week in advance to reserve a spot.
Break out those mittens, pull on that cozy sweater, and get ready to embark on a whimsical winter adventure with their horse-drawn sleigh rides. The 45-minute sleigh ride with Snow Mountain Stables is a winding journey through the Rocky Mountains. Glide past snow-frosted pines and scenic mountain vistas, all ending at a crackling bonfire complete with hot chocolate.
OTHER SLEIGH RIDES
Book a group sleigh ride with Dashing Thru the Snow. Snuggle under warm woolen blankets and relax to the sound of bells jingling as their team of gentle-giant draft horses carry your sleigh over historic glistening snow covered trails. After the ride, warm up by the fire while sipping hot cocoa and roasting marshmallows while the kids play on the sledding hill. For those special occasions, you can even book a private sleigh ride on one of their smaller sleighs. Either way, you’re sure to have a magical experience.
