Offseason is a time for rest and relaxation for mushers and sled dogs.
One question that people occasionally ask is what do your dogs do during the offseason when they are not dog sledding?
Generally, we try to have fun with the dogs and take them to a variety of places. The running season is generally from about September through April, although it is weather dependent. During the offseason, we try to spend a lot of time hiking with the dogs, camping, swimming, traveling, relaxing, and of course Okemo's favorite: picnics.

Okemo works hard as sleddog during the dogsledding season and gets to relax during the spring and summer.
