The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 8 - Dog Sledding
On the 8th day of Opening day, my true love gave to me....a truly Canadian experience!
As Whistler and Whistlerites gear up for the start of another amazing season, in the 16 days leading up to Opening Day, I'm going to give you 16 different ideas of some awesome things to do this winter season!
Mush mush mush your way across the land with some of THE most energetic dogs you'll ever meet!
Why not try an activity that dates back nearly 4,000 years?
Researchers hint that life in Northern Canada may never have been
possible without these guys!
Want to feel like a true Canadian? Hook a few of these guys up to the gang-lines, and grab a glass of pure maple syrup to drink along the way as you head up to your igloo for the night. Don't forget your ice skates, as the igloo is on a hockey rink. I'm pretty sure I just described Canada to a tee, eh?
Ok, maybe you won't end up at an Igloo, guzzling back maple syrup all while playing hockey. But hey, commandeering a fleet of energetic sled dogs is a pretty damn neat thing to do! How many of your friends back home can say they've done that? I'm guessing almost none.
Go on. Make them envious!
Oh, and usually there's a litter of puppies on the complex that steal all the attention. Pretty sure no one can say No to puppies. They pretty much win every time. And no, you can't just "borrow" one and take him home with you. Apparently they're not fans of that. Weird. (I say this based on assumptions. I've never heard of a friend of a friend of a cousins friend trying that.....)
