What To Wear For Your Dogsledding Trip 

Dressing for dogsledding is very similar to dressing for skiing.  Wear layers that you can leave in the sled if you heat up; you’ll be taking turns at driving the actual dogsled, and when you’re not driving, you’ll ride in another sled, pulled by a snowmobile.Protect your eyes and hands for not just comfort, but also safety purposes. You’ll be gripping metal, and sun and wind can do a number on unprotected eyes.   Multiple layers and ski wear, winter boots, goggles or sunglasses, gloves and neck warmers are highly recommended.
