Columbia winters bring out the true adventurer. There are many places
to visit and explore; it's an excellent time to enjoy the snow covered
silent backcountry. Sparkling snow blankets the county side, the blue
sky reaches down to touch you and the distant mountains appear a hazy
purple-gray in colour. The air is crisp, clean and so refreshing. Remote
areas can be reached by cross-country
and telemark skiing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and of course dog sledding.
sledding is quickly gaining popularity, in part because this type of transportation
fun does not create air or noise pollution. Imagine yourself in a comfortable
sled as a team of dogs takes you gliding silently over hill and dale.
Miles of snow covered rolling hills and treed meadows make for hours of
enjoyable dog sledding. The various regions offer different types of terrain,
so every trail is new and exciting. Through out the province there are
numerous dog sled operators offering rides by the hour, day and over-night
camping adventure packages.
It's time to discover the picturesque beauty of winter in British Columbia
and the fun of dog sledding.
