1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was all amazing! Working with the dogs was a highlight of course, they are incredible. But also the way the trip was put together; our guide was fantastic, and the whole ranch team were wonderful and really went out of their way to make things tick. The landscape just takes your breath away and makes you glad to be alive and privileged to be there.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

A reasonable level of fitness will help - expect a bit of running in snow :) Don't take too much stuff - the recommended pack list is fine.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, all of the above to some degree. It's adventure more than conservation, but done with care for the environment and with as minimal impact as can be managed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Truly brilliant.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Working with the dogs was my favourite part of the trip. I loved meeting all the different dogs and getting to know their different personalities. They are such great workers and I miss them now I am back home.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

I have had surgery on my knees and the sledding did cause a bit of pain for me. If you are fit and healthy then you should be fine and enjoy the trip. There was no power at the lodge where I stayed but it was very enjoyable to live without any technology for the two weeks I was there.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It definitely benefitted the dogs, all they want to do is run. It was a very environmental friendly vacation as no electricity or technology are used for the entire trip. The dogs love getting out on the trails and it's great to get out in the fresh air.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I had an amazing two weeks! If you are thinking about it, book it! Even with my dodgy knees, and that I wasn't able to do all the runs, I still had a fantastic time and want to go back. The guides were all fantastic, and had different tips and tricks for sledding. I loved the dogs and miss my team. We had terrific home cooked meals every morning and night. Every aspect of the trip was great, thanks to everyone at Sky High Wilderness Ranch!
