Quebec- Dog sledding Video from Mont Tremblant

Dogsledding is hard work. Who knew! I stood on the back of the sled with my guide, from Adventures Banquise, who was commanding the dogs. You have to balance yourself on these boards on the back of the sled and really shift your weight as you travel, especially around the turns. Nine huskies, led by Flipper, took us on a wild ride through the woods, across a vast lake and back. I was even able to lead at one point, with one foot on the break, so that we didn’t fly too fast. I was also in a mini accident near the end, when we took a turn and went off the trails and I was thrown from the sleigh into about five feet of snow. Pouf!
