Dog Sledding at Treetops Resort
WHAT: Join Team Evergreen and Liza Dietzen and take an exhilarating ride through the trails on the Jones Masterpiece Golf Course behind a team of dogs that is training for the ultimate sled dog race, “The Iditarod.” Each ride will take you two miles through quite possibly the prettiest trails in northern Michigan. This experience can be enjoyed individually or with a child.
WHEN: December 29, 30 & 31, January 14 & 15, February 11 & 12, and March 4 & 5. Rides are scheduled throughout the day. Call our Reservations Department for a time slot before they fill up.
HOW: Advance reservations are suggested and pre-payment is required at the time of booking. Check in at the Activities Center at least 15 minutes in advance of your scheduled time.
COST: $50 per person, ($15 for additional person in sled). A “sled load” consists of the following:
1 adult under 200 lbs.
1 adult and 1 child under 200 lbs.
2 children under 200 lbs. A separate time slot must be booked for each “sled load.” To accommodate families, it is recommended that you reserve time slots that are back to back.
