Peace Pups Dogsledding – Vermont & Dog-Powered Adventures
Contact: Ken Haggett
Come experience the beauty of winter in Lake Elmore Vermont via one of the oldest modes of winter transportation. Venture back to a time before the invention of the combustible engine; a time when a main form of winter wilderness travel was a team of Siberian Huskies. You will be amazed at the energy and excitement as our Siberians are harnessed to take you on your ride. If you have ever had any doubt about Siberians Huskies being born to run; a ride with one of our teams will demonstrate to you just how much they love it. Conveniently located twenty five minutes from Stowe and twenty five minutes from Montpelier with a second evening location right at Stowe Mountain Resort on the Mountain Road in Stowe. Join us for a ride in one of our custom hand built touring sleds behind an eight dog team of Siberian Huskies and see the Vermont winter in a whole new way. Our day tours located at Lake Elmore are currently being run on a beautiful trail with access generously provided by Atlas Timberlands Partnership, a joint project of the Vermont Land Trust (VLT) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). We start out along Rt.12 near the north branch of the Winooski River and travel across rolling terrain which follows streams, old beaver ponds and wet lands with a mix of hardwood and softwood forest. We turn around at Little Elmore; a remote body of water south of Lake Elmore. This forest is host to a variety of animals including moose, bear and coyote to name a few. This is a true wilderness setting located at the north end of one of the areas largest undeveloped tracks of land. When you arrive at our trail site you will meet our two teams of Siberian Huskies and learn all you ever wanted to know about sled dogs and the activity of dogsledding. We will teach you about the equipment we use to work with the dogs and how the sleds function. Next we will seat you in one of our comfortable padded sleds and tuck you in with a warm sleeping bag. Once you are situated in the sled we will hook up a eight dog team and begin the run. These runs are over a five mile out and back trail and take anywhere from forty five minutes to an hour depending on the trail conditions. The harder packed the trail the faster the run.
