Mushing 101 in the Cariboo Chilcotin

At the NorthernStar Kennels, north of Quesnel, BC, those seeking an Alaskan sled dog experience can bond with man’s best friend, with in-depth instruction to equip adventurists with essential sledding skills. Patrons can hop on a sled for a short 1.5-hour traverse of the trail, or make a day of it with Mushing 101.
