New Winter Weekends, 2012- 2013

Hoping for December snow to launch our Winter Wilderness Weekends which extend through January and February, always snow permitting.

Located two hours north of Green Bay, three hours north of Milwaukee, four hours
north of Madison, we are an easy access get away location.  Leave the city  behind and enjoy this special outdoor winter experience.

The weekends are planned to teach Learn to Drive a Dog Sled for groups up to five.
Arrival on Friday night, lodging is provided in a lakeside cottage, ten miles from the kennel.

Dog sled driving participants should be reasonably fit and able to run a short distance uphill behind the sleds, as needed.   Participants who prefer to observe and perhaps photograph will also be welcome.   Each participant will learn how to handle a dog team being harnessed and hooked up.

Early Saturday a.m. you will be transported to the kennel where we'll immerse you in the world of dog sled driving.  Get to know the basics of dog sled driving, while getting to know these great dogs, taught on our 80 acres of groomed trails. All teams are accompanied by snowmachine and handler.   Trail lunch at noon and opportunities to run more sleds, cross country ski or snowshoe in the afternoon.   Saturday p.m. we'll return you to the cottage for a hot Yooper pasty supper,  some fireside chat and a dog sled video.  

The weekend cost is $325 per person, including lodging, three hours of dog sled driving instruction for the group,  free time on the trails, trail lunch, hot supper. A $100 deposit is required three weeks prior to your weekend arrival.   If weather does not cooperate with enough snow for sleds, we can set a reschedule date or provide the basics with our ORV, safe conditions permitting.    We guarantee a weekend of  memorable getaway from your daily world.
