Rossland has the most fabulous new dog sledding experience- Powder Paws! I went out on a picture perfect day today- with 12 dogs pulling the sled up the back of Red Mountain Resort. It was absolutely stunning with a beautiful view out over the neighbouring mountains and a perfect blue sky. The trip started out by having us help out with harnessing up the dogs- I couldn't believe how strong they were. We took two sleds out with 25 dogs for about 45 mins. It was really fun and would be a great trip out for a family or just about anyone- apparently their first client was a 70 year old. They took great care of us- and it was an exciting trip back down the trail. Also pretty interesting as the trail goes up thru the old mining area and past some of the old buildings. This is a fantastic way to spend a day in Rossland.
