Mushing in Central Oregon

A howling symphony saturates the crisp morning air. Sled teams of Alaskan huskies, their soulful blue eyes tilted skyward in a call of the wild are ready to run across a field of fresh powder through the picturesque hills and valleys of Central Oregon. >>Read Story

Our friend Terry Richard from the Oregonian recently wrote an interesting story about the wonderful experience of “mushing” (dog sledding). This one-of-a-kind experience is offered by Oregon’s only commercial sled dog operation, Trail of Dreams, operated and owned by Jerry Scdoris and his daughter Rachael, who was the first blind athlete to compete and finish in Alaska’s legendary Iditarod race in both 2005 and 2006.

This ride starts at Mt. Bachelor and takes you thorough miles of spectacular through snow country with jaw-dropping views of snow-covered Broken Top, the Three Sisters and Mt. Bachelor.

To book a spot, please call Mt. Bachelor’s reservation staff at 800-829-2442. For day-of-ride reservations, check with the information center inside the Sunrise Lodge.
