Denise, Cameron & The Mountain Musher team,
Thank you so much for such a unique and invigorating experience! As South Florida natives we were a bit worried when we woke up themorning of our sledding trip to see the temperature at a whopping negative 8! My husband and I exchanged nervous glances as we loaded ourselves andour four year old daughter into the punctual Musher Mountain pick up van.
We were delighted to discover that the Mountain Musher team was first class from start to finish. From Denise in the office, to the friendly van driver and especially Cameron our sled driver, Mountain Mushers attention to detail was apparent.
As an equestrian coach and animal enthusiast I can appreciate competent,compassionate animal handlers. When booking our vacation sledding trip I wondered about the condition and moral of the animals. I was immediately at ease. The wagging tales and bright smiling eyes of the plump shiny dogs hinted to the deeply passionate, educated and competent team behind them. The well being of the dogs is obviously something Mountain Musher takes pride in.
If the happy healthy dogs didn't speak for themselves, Cameron (our sled driver) did.He bragged about each and every one by name. Even the lazy gold dog withhalf a tail! He explained that even though not every dog is the strongest team mate, they are all part of the family and they are all loved (That meant something to us). He went on to tell us how the older dogs get rotated out after their first morning run, while the younger, more eager dogs live to do two runs a day (with a 3 hour break). Cameron went on to take off his own personal gloves to help warm up our young daughter. He was engaging, knowledgable and most importantly a kind educated and well versed leader for the dogs who so obviously love and respect him.
If the people and dogs didn't sell the experience, the breath taking views and pristine pathways of the Colorado mountains did, and if for some odd reason all of that wasn't enough, the delicious homemade pumpkin bread and hot chocolate was the icing on top of the icing! Thank you so much Mountain Musher for running such a first class operation and for being the most memorable part of our trip to Colorado.
We will be spreading the word and we can't wait to see you again during our next visit.
