My husband and I did this event last Saturday in Westbrook, Maine. The setting was really pretty with lots of fresh snow but it was bitter cold outside and the line for the dogsled ride was very, very long. We waited about an hour and didn’t move forward so we had to leave without a ride. My hands and feet were aching from the cold. We did get to see the dog teams and the staff were very nice.
Fantastic experience! The tickets should have been sold in time slots. Although we arrived promptly at opening /start time we still had a bit of a wait. I felt so bad for people with children who were in the middle towards the end! I knew their whole day was going to be waiting in the cold for their 12 minute dogsledding experience! ( Which was worth about an hour wait for sure!! )

About Ultimate Dog-Sledding Experience
To say that Alex Therriault was raised by dogs is a bit of an overstatement, but not much. The owner of Ultimate Dog Sledding Experience started dog-sled racing at the tender age of 3 and has continued the family tradition ever since. Along the way, he's picked up numerous awards, including a 4th place finish in the World Championships in 2011.
At Ultimate Dog Sledding Experience, Alex and his staff have hand-raised the entire furry brood of well-mannered huskies. After introductions between two- and four-legged participants, the friendly dogs lead fast-paced romps across well-maintained trails surrounded by scenic vistas.
