Our season starts the day after Thanksgiving and continues through the end of March. Treks leave daily at 9:15am from the Dogsled Office at Chico Hot Springs Resort, located in Paradise Valley, just 26 miles south of Livingston, MT and 30 miles north of Yellowstone National Park.
Drive your own team of huskies or kick back and let our guides do the work! Bring the whole family and experience a ride of a lifetime with this unique Montana adventure!
What to wear:
Dress warm and waterproof! It is recommended that you dress in layers wearing at MINIMUM a hat, gloves, parka, snow pants, snow boots that rise above the ankle, and protective eyewear (sunglasses or goggles). Coats, hats, gloves, snow pants, and boots can be provided for your trek at no extra charge. Hand-warmers are available for a minimal charge.
We provide traditional wooden sleds, handcrafted from white ash. Tandem sleds are also available for those who would like to drive their own team with the added safety of a guide. Before each trek, guests will listen to a 10-15 minute Mushing 101 presentation to familiarize them with dogsledding terms and techniques. All guides are trained in CPR and First Aid.
At the Absaroka Dogsled Treks kennel, we raise both purebred Siberian Huskies as well as Alaskan Huskies. The Siberian Husky is a working dog breed that originated in northeastern Siberia, bred by the Chukchi to pull heavy loads long distances. Alaskan Huskies are a mix breed husky bred to be highly efficient sled dogs. Both husky breeds are known to be highly intelligent, energetic, and gentle, each with their own personality.
Made by Samsung DVCAbsaroka Dogsled Treks was originally founded by Mark and Sharon Nardin in 1990. The Nardin’s built the foundation of our kennel by maintaining bloodlines brought down from Alaska of which several of our dogs originate.
Absaroka Dogsled Treks maintains AKC registered Siberian Huskies and offers puppies for sale. Be sure to ask us about upcoming litters! We also have an adoption program for our retired sled dogs who would love to keep running recreationally and would also be excellent companions.
