So I'm sure by now you are thinking: This is Maryland, what if there is no snow? Temperatures permitting, even when there is no snow, we can still go. When not running on snow, which is much of the time here in central Maryland, we dog sled using our three wheel and four wheel dog sled rigs (click for picture). In mushing, a wheeled cart used for dog sledding when there is no snow is called a “rig” or a “gig.” Our larger rig allows us to carry a passenger seated on dog sledding tours and dog sled rides. The larger rig can be seen in our dog sledding gallery, which has pictures from past programs.
Do you have an adventurous spirit? Do you love dogs? Want to spend four days dog sledding on snow through the scenic Maine woods? If so, check out our special women's only Maine Winter Cabin Adventure and then email Catherine for more information and to register.
