Normally tours run Wednesday through Sunday and on Holidays. Rides start times are 9 am., 11:30 am., and 2 pm. If your family wants to have two sleds available we will do one tour and follow up right away and go out again with the next sled. While one sled is out on the trail the others can take in a warm beverage at the ski lodge just a 1/4 mile up the road. Two sled tours must start at either 9:00 am or 11:30 am. Passengers should arrive 20 minutes prior to departure time. Dress with layers of clothing. No rides are given for infants.( under three years of age) Children must be accompanied by an adult. Toilet facilities and parking are available at the trail head.
