Leslie came to the Alaska from twenty years ago, started from 2 Alaskan Malamutes and has grown into 50 dogs and a dogsledding cultural exhibition center now. As the annual dog sled race in Alaska becomes so popular all over the world, Leslie opens a training ground for the sled dogs and trains young mushers. She also provides dog sled adventures for the tourists and the income is to prepare for various International dog sled races. She is honored very much by the local community for supporting young mushers and helping them raise funds. In Leslie’s dog sledding cultural exhibition center, it uses pictures, audios and physical objects to show visitors how an Alaskan native use the dog sled as a traditional commuting tool and its profound cultural traditions. You will also have a chance to play with the cute dogs.
In winter (approximately from November 16th to the beginning of April, the specific date will be adjusted according to the local weather and temperature) you will experience the thrill of the dog sledding over the snow for about 20 to 25 minutes. Two passengers will sit on one sled that is being pulled by a team of dogs. The leading dogs are responsible for the direction and the dog near the seat is the most powerful. You will be speeding on the trail through the forest, splashing snowflakes and have lots of fun.
In autumn when there is insufficient snowfall (approximately from September 16th to November 15th, the specific date will be adjusted according to the local weather and temperature), the musher will let the dog team pull a ATV instead of a sled for about 5 to 10 minutes.
