While the experience is thrilling, understanding the intricacies of getting a sled dog to pull effectively is essential for a smooth and enjoyable adventure. The dogsledding is a sport. Participants will be active during the ride.
Challenges for Activity Participants
For those embarking on dogsledding tours in Mont-Tremblant, the challenge lies not in physically persuading the dogs to pull but rather in managing and guiding them effectively. Participants often find themselves maneuvering a sled for the first time, requiring quick adaptation to balance and control while standing on the runners. Understanding the commands, coordinating with the dogs, and managing the sled’s speed can initially pose challenges for novices.
Additionally, managing the foot brake can be a unique challenge. Participants might find themselves intermittently standing still or running alongside the sled, requiring swift adjustments to their stance and movement to match the dogs’ pace. The sled’s foot brake, used to control speed and direction, can kick up snow, necessitating sturdy, insulated boots to withstand these conditions.
