Really cool trip. I would love to do one like that. I'm glad you both had a great time.

I forgot to mention that the reason Stu was a little hesitant for Aurora to lead the team (especially through the woods) was that he wanted me to help stop the team, if need be, by keeping my legs out. He thought they might get caught when we passed close to a tree. As it turned out, it was never an issue. He thought she did a great job too!

Great report! I used to take students over winter break dogsledding for a week with Wintergreen; that was a lot of fun! One year my daughter Allie was able to join us, and many years later she still talks about that trip. Aurora is beyond fortunate to have a papa like you!

So fun. What a great gift idea. We like giving bucket list type experiences as gifts to our kids and this has me thinking and scheming for next season. Thanks for posting!
