A 660 ft. run makes for plenty of excitement! Fly down the track on a snow tube and ride the tow rope back to the top. It's all the fun you remember as a kid without the aggravation of climbing back up the hill.
Available mid-December through the beginning of March (weather permitting)
In winter, our teams of well-trained snow dogs will take you on a dog sled ride you will never forget! Want to drive the dogs yourself? Mushing lessons are available.
When there's no snow, wheeled cart rides are available if the outside temperature is cool enough so the dogs do not overheat.
Learn all about our dog sled teams. You'll love our Alaskan Huskies that are housed in our dog yard found at the Back Forty Ranch. Ask a Double JJ Musher about our Pooch Pal Program too!
Available whenever the dogs aren't busy pulling sleds.
