Our two- and three-day weekend trips are in the Umbagog Lake and Mahoosuc Mountain areas. Activities for all weekend trips include mushing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The only difference is that on the second day of the three-day weekend, we take a day trip from our base camp by dog team and cross-country skis. Two people per sled work with the dog teams on all weekend trips, except the all mush three-day weekend trips.

Our weekend trips begin at 7 p.m. the first day, when we outfit you with winter equipment, answer questions, and review the itinerary. The following morning, we head out with the huskies for two or three days on the trail. We return around 4 p.m. on the last day.  You will need to make reservations to stay with us in our lodge, farmhouse bed and breakfast, or a local hotel or bed and breakfast the first night for an additional fee.

Winter travel can be physically challenging. The better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy your trip. If you are relatively inactive, start exercising at least one month before your trip. You should be able to ski or snowshoe four miles with a light pack. While we’re on the trail, we camp in the traditional style of the canvas wall tents heated with wood stoves with balsam fir bough floors.
