Sleigh Rides

The fresh powder crunches under your boots as you walk out to join the group for the sleigh ride. The remaining clouds overhead are parting, revealing a brilliant blue sky. The wrangler tucks you into the sleigh under a thick , warm quilt and you’re off – gliding through the snow behind the mammoth draft horses, nose tingling in the crisp winter mountain air.


The cheerful jingle of the bell-covered harnesses drifts back to you as the horses trot in unison up the hill. As you round the corner and clear the top of the hill, a postcard-perfect vista of snow-covered mountains emerges in front of you. The sleigh glides down the back side of the hill, and you have arrived at your destination: an old-fashioned packer’s tent where you will be welcomed with your choice of a hot cup of cocoa or a fabulous homemade dinner.
