WINTER DOGSLEDDING GENERALLY RUNS MID-DECEMBER - LATE MARCH
LOCATED IN ELY, MINNESOTA
A good outdoor winter clothing system should include a base layer (long underwear); 1 or 2 mid-layers (fleece, wool, etc.); and a warm jacket, preferably with a windproof outer shell. Warm winter hats are mandatory! Also indispensable is a scarf, neck warmer, or face mask; gloves and mittens; and sunglasses or ski goggles to protect your eyes. To finish it all off—a warm pair of winter boots is a basic necessity.
Once you arrive, we will assess your clothing and make recommendations if we believe your clothing is inadequate to the conditions and temperatures on the trail that day. If you need any or all of these items, you may rent them right here onsite at very reasonable rates.
