Dog Sledding in Heavenly, South Lake Tahoe,
Heavenly Mountain Resort is located near the city of South Lake Tahoe, on the California-Nevada border, El Dorado County, California, USA.
As a result of that, part of ski resort is in California and another part is in Nevada. When you visit Ηeavenly, you should definitely try dog sledding. Get on a comfortable sled, while an experienced musher gives orders to a group of friendly, strong huskies to sled through meadows and pristine forests in the mountain.
Feel the refreshing smell of pine trees and the intoxicating smell of wildflowers, scattered around the mountain. Watch the beautiful palette that is shaping with the powdered snow, the rocks, the trees and the flowers.
Glide through Tahoe National Forest under the blue sky of mid days or take the magnificent full moon experience and feel the forest floor in the soft, ethereal glow of the moonlight.
