The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 8 – Dog Sledding
On the 8th day of Opening day, my true love gave to me….atruly Canadian experience!
As Whistler and Whistlerites gear up for the start of anotheramazing season, in the 16 days leading up to Opening Day, I’m goingto give you 16 different ideas of some awesome things to do thiswinter season!
Mush mush mush your way across the land with some of THE mostenergetic dogs you’ll ever meet!
Why not try an activity that dates back nearly 4,000 years?Researchers hint that life in Northern Canada may never have beenpossible without these guys!
Want to feel like a true Canadian? Hook a few of these guys up tothe gang-lines, and grab a glass of pure maple syrup to drink alongthe way as you head up to your igloo for the night. Don’t forgetyour ice skates, as the igloo is on a hockey rink. I’m pretty sureI just described Canada to a tee, eh?
Ok, maybe you won’t end up at an Igloo, guzzling back maple syrupall while playing hockey. But hey, commandeering a fleet ofenergetic sled dogs is a pretty damn neat thing to do! How many ofyour friends back home can say they’ve done that? I’m guessingalmost none.
Go on. Make them envious!
Oh, and usually there’s a litter of puppies on the complex thatsteal all the attention. Pretty sure no one can say No to puppies.They pretty much win every time. And no, you can’t just “borrow”one and take him home with you. Apparently they’re not fans ofthat. Weird. (I say this based on assumptions. I’ve never heard ofa friend of a friend of a cousins friend trying that…..)
