Dogsledding and Sleigh Rides in Squaw Valley

Visitors to the Olympic Valley in North Lake Tahoe can experience the magic of Tahoe's winter terrain from a horse-drawn sleigh or the back of a dogsled at Resort at Squaw Creek. 

For children and adults alike, the chance for a horse-drawn sleigh ride through snowy meadows and forested paths is a winter delight not soon to be forgotten. Borges Sleigh Rides offers trips over the river and through the woods right from Resort at Squaw Creek's Nordic Center daily during the winter season, weather and conditions permitting. Each antique sleigh has warm blankets for snuggling, but you should still plan on dressing warmly for the experience. Make a reservation directly by calling Borges Sleigh Rides at 530.580.8439 or simply speak to our Concierge. 

For something completely new, take your family on a dogsled ride through Squaw Valley's meadows with Wilderness Adventures Dogsled Tours. Take in the views of the six massive peaks of Squaw Valley, meet the Alaskan Huskies who pull the sleds, and learn about the sport of dogsledding from the friendly, experienced guides. Dog Sled Tours are offered daily in the winter, weather and conditions permitting. Make a reservation directly with Wilderness Adventures by calling 530.550.8133 or simply speak to our Concierge. 

For children who love animals, meeting the sled dogs and the carriage horses is a magical memory they will cherish for years.
