Please Read If You've Booked a Tour
Thank you for booking your dog sled experience through Bear Ridge Adventures. We are a family run business and we offer a unique dog sled experience. We hook 10 to 12 dogs up per team to handle our more technical trails. Our trails are up a canyon so there are mountains on both sides which many people see wildlife on their tours.
What to Expect
-Please arrive 15 minutes before your tour time. (If you booked a 9 am tour you'd arrive at 8:45 am).
-You will arrive at a residential house and park in front of our parking signs!
-We have a white building where you will sign a liability waiver and wait for a musher to pick you up in our shuttle van. We leave on the hour to head up to the dogs (5 to 10 min drive depending on where we are starting our tours). We run on private property so we will shuttle everyone up. We don't allow anyone to drive up separate.
-Please don't be late.
-Please use the restroom (porta potty) if you need before leaving because it will be the last chance for bathrooms until you return back to your cars.
Address: 965 South Hoytsville Rd. Coalville, UT 84017
Please know who is riding in each sled of your group.
Once we get to the dogs, they are so eager to run we will quickly load up in the sleds and head out. Each sled will have a musher and they will be able to answer any questions you have about dog sledding.
We have tandem sleds which allows one person to stand on the back behind the musher.
Once you get to the turn around spot we will stop the dogs, get out of the sleds and allow you to pet and love on the dogs! You can take pictures and enjoy the scenery. If anyone is wanting to switch sitting and standing spots on the sled you'll do that then.
Once you make it back to the shuttle van you will say goodbye to the dogs and mushers. You can tip your mushers (if you didn't already add it to your credit card). We will head back down to the house. There is hot chocolate in the white building once we get back
- If you don't have a vehicle to get to us, do NOT use Uber/Lyft. You will most likely miss your tour. Go to "Book Now" to find taxi service numbers to arrange transportation.
-Weight limit per sled: 350 lbs. This is for our dogs safety.
-Any observers or family members not participating will have to wait in the white building by the parking area. We will not be able to shuttle them up to the dogs.
-Dress warm (snow pants, snow boots, hats, coats, and gloves). Many people wear ski googles if it's snowing, keep their face warm on extra cold days, or in place of sunglasses if it's sunny out.
-We have a 48 hour cancellation policy (we charge full price for any sleds cancelled 2 days before your tour). This includes if you fail to arrive due to Uber/Lyft.
-Because we shuttle you up to the dogs, the 1 hour tour is longer start to finish to account for the drive up and back. We start shuttling higher to get to better snow usually around the end of February. From December to beginning of February they tend to be done around 1 hour 10 minutes. From February to March the 1 hour tours are taking about 1.5 hours. The 2 hour tours are taking 2.5 hours.
