Without sleds to pull, packs of restless huskies would wander into villages and drag off any available cars, trucks, or unguarded mobile homes for a bit of impromptu mushing. Harness sled-dog impulses with today's Groupon: for $169, you get two Chugach Express dogsled tours with Dario Martinez in Girdwood (up to a $338 value).

Headquartered at Alyeska Resort, Chugach Express slides along at the behest of head musher Dario Martinez, a nine-time Iditarod participant. At the beginning of the one-hour tour, guests learn about contemporary mushing methods and visit the kennel to meet the sled dogs, all of which have raced in the Iditarod. Then, they'll hop on the sled for some exciting snow sailing as Martinez guides the canines through Moose Meadows. A few brazen riders may get the chance to seize the reins, stopping at a planned destination, or making a quick detour to California. A portion of today’s Groupon will help support a future Iditarod team and the Alaska Dogsledding Center.

  • being able to drive a team of highly trained Alaskan Huskies through the snow-draped rain forest and frosted alpine meadows of Girdwood is a thrill no summer visitor will ever know. – Rachel Drinkard, Turnagain Times

Dario was just totally amazing. He was so friendly, knowledgeable, and, genuine. It was such a pleasure to spend a few hours with him! He's a great photographer too! And lets not forget those hard working pups! What go getters they are!
