Emails and Letters About Mountain Musher

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had on the dogsled ride!!!! Bill (our driver) was great and I was so impressed with the friendliness of everyone. They were so welcoming, encouraging the kids to pet the Huskies, ask questions & get involved in the whole experience! We both learned a lot & had a wonderful time. Next time, I'm bringing more of our family! Thank you so much!


Thank you so much for the experience of a lifetime... A bucket list experience!!! The dogs gave their all... The mushers gave their all! Again I can't thank you enough.


Wally/Sara et. al. We just wanted to say thank you so much for giving us our #1 highlight of our CO vacation. We were with you Sat March 22 (in the afternoon during the 6 snow) and we truly had an amazing time. We told at least 10 other families that an afternoon with you was a once in a lifetime experience.
PS - Give Snow and Peanut kisses for us


Dog Sled ProposalI wanted to write in to say thank you, after finding Mountain Mushers online I knew it was the place I wanted to propose. I had no idea how great of an experience it would really be, everything from the setting to our musher Cameron was perfect. He was great to talk to and told us a lot about the different dogs, he was also willing and did a great job capturing the moment for use when i asked him to keep shooting. Thank you again for the perfect setting, I really can't thank you or say enough. It was an event that we will never forget for the rest of our lives and hope to make it back as often as we can.


Hi there! Just wanted to reach out and tell you again what a wonderful time we had this morning on our awesome adventure! It was a great experience Bill was a lot of fun and the dogs were amazing. Our daughter Shiloh had an absolute blast she hasn't stopped talking about the dogs and wants to move there so she can dog sled everyday! (She's five). I am huge dog lover and dog owner and could see that the dogs are well cared for. There was a moment at the end when Bill was petting all the dogs and giving them praise one of the dogs A.J. was very shy and Bill got down whispered to him face to face and gave him a quick dog smooch so sweet! Thank you again for giving us a wonderful family memory. All the best


Fabulous experience!! Thanks for the perfect day and great customer service!! Bill was great!!!


I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of the club and myself for the wonderful experience you all worked so hard to provide for us last Sunday. I still hear about how amazing it was from all of them. I can say from my experience alone, it was one of the most incredible winter activities I have ever done. I thought powder days on my board was a big deal until I got to do this. Sarah was our musher and she was fantastic, she taught us so much about the sport and each individual dog and breed. I was so impressed. Your pumpkin bread and hot cocoa was fantastic and a great touch to the experience. I heard fabulous things about all the other mushers as well. Such a great day! THANK YOU!!!


We took your tour Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bill picked us up on time and entertained us on the way to the top of the mountain. He knew a lot of facts about the area and the dogs – very informative and enjoyable. The area is breathtakingly beautiful. We rode with musher, Landon. He was very knowledgeable and was more than happy to share his knowledge of the dogs and how they are trained. We have two small dogs that had to be left with family and we are really missing them but Big and two of the other dogs (can't remember their names) gave us all kind of kisses. They knew we were dog people and gave us plenty of attention. The ride itself was beautiful. We saw some coyote tracks and bear paw scratches on some trees. The snow was untouched – no snowmobiles, no skiers or skateboarders – just beautiful pristine snow. I was surprised at how beautiful the ranch was. I watched the dogs most of the time just enjoying how well trained they were. They bark and strain on the leashes but the minute Landon said Hike they took off and didn't utter another woof!! We have done many things in our lives, and I will rate this as my favorite adventure. When we got to the end, Sarah showed us the pictures that she has taken of the dogs. I bought a calendar so that I can remember the dogsledding all year. My husband got a t-shirt with one of the beautiful dog's faces on it. On the way down the mountain in the van, we saw three deer. What a wonderful day. I have been recommending this trip to everyone we see. Thanks Mountain Mushers – Keep up the good work!


I just wanted to say a big thank you for the most spectacular husky ride on Wednesday. Our 'musher' was Landon and he was fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly and a very focussed young man. The dogs were wonderful too. We hope to repeat the experience next time we are in Vail. Kind regards


I just had to write and let you know of the great time we had dog sledding. We were on the afternoon tour on this past Monday. Our musher Cameron was awesome, this guy deserves a raise. He made an already great dog sledding expereince even better. Please keep up the good work, we will see you all next time. Thanks


Hello to all at Mountain Mushers
happy dogs and customersJust wanted to say thank you again for a wonderful sledding experience this morning. We were just looking at the photos and this one that Cameron took is just so cute we wanted to share it with you. Please remind me of the name of the photogenic star of this photo.
We will be happily recommending you to anyone we know coming out this way. Thanks again it was brilliant.


My husband and I took this dog sledding tour last Saturday, December 18. Bill was our Musher. Just want to let you know that we had a GREAT time. I had a great time with the dogs and the humans as well. I felt like the dogs were well tended to and loved. I have great memories from my trip. Thanks for making my vacation a great one. Bill and the dogs did a great job! Just want to say thanks!


Thanks for a great time dog sledding with you all. happy customersWe had a blast. Hope to do it again sometime. Left to right in photo: Jacque, Nancy (rode with Wally!), Susan and Jane.


Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had with Mountain Mushers. Much better than our experience with a different outfit last year. Virtually perfect weather was then the icing on the cake!
We will be back out for spring break at the end of March, so I will be in touch again shortly with any requirements we may have for that trip.


Lee and I and her two grandchildren had a wonderful time on our sled adventure two weeks ago. You all did such a terrific job. Just a perfect afternoon.
As I mentioned, it brought back memories of my youth when we went to visit a relative in Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire who raised sled dogs.
It was a treat to sled with you and retouch a part of my youth. Thank you for the adventure.
Have a great winter!


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.


Dear Mountain Musher Family,
happy dog sledderWe wanted to thank you and your family for such a great experience that we will never forget. Your entire family were such friendly and informative hosts. My daughter, Allie, has talked Non stop about how Mr Cameron let her drive and how much she loves the dog Sarah. Allie had to wear her shirt today and we had to search for a stuffed animal last night that looked like Sarah. As you can see she has slept with Sarah and she has gone everywhere with her.. even in the carseat. Thank you once again for everything! We enjoyed it and it was the highlight of our trip!
