What To Expect
Good Times runs a 6-mile tour along the winding trails of the Swan River Valley.

Tours can handle up to 6 people and run as a relay. Guests will switch off between running the dogs, riding in the sled, and riding on a small passenger sleigh with the guide. A truly one-of-a-kind experience for the family to enjoy!
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.
Dogsledding is one of the most popular winter activities in Breckenridge. Make reservations for this unforgettable experience as early as possible.
