To participate, you must be healthy, enjoy working with dogs and have a good team spirit. Dog sledding is a physical activity so you should be in relatively good physical shape. You don’t just stand on the back of a sled and wait for the adventure to happen like in the movies. YOU have to work, YOU have to be fit. YOU are running with your sled to help the dogs up the hills or pushing it along with your legs. YOU do have to use your body to go on the trails to slow down and go round corners. YOU do help feed the dogs after they work hard all day, YOU do clear up dog poo at camp and set them up with straw for the night. YOU do ensure your kit is ready and checked every morning before YOU harness the dogs.
Sky High Wilderness Ranch is a true Yukon experience! This “off the grid” lifestyle ranch is serviced by quaint outhouses, has limited cell service, no WiFi and water is hauled up from downtown. Our buildings are warmed by a wood stove, making for a cozy stay, we have gravity fed showers and our lights & appliances are all powered by propane (no electricity). We also have a wood-heated sauna!
Unforeseeable circumstances such as adverse weather conditions, wind chill factor, extreme temperatures (-30 or lower), the condition of the group, or illness of the dogs may force us to change this itinerary. The safety of our guests and dogs take precedence and our decisions are final.
You will be required to sign a "release of claims and waiver of liability form" prior to tour departure.
We strongly suggest all of our guests consider the purchase of travel insurance for protection against cancellation penalties and any other unforeseeable circumstances, such as emergency evacuation.
We offer hearty home cooked meals prepared by our guides in our cozy lodge kitchen We do not charge for special diets however we do require a Doctor's note in order for us to cater to any special diet. Space for cooking and food storage is limited and therefore ask that you send Doctor's note with all dietary issues/allergies at least 2 weeks in advance of your arrival so that we can be organized and prepared for your stay.
