Dogsledding dates back to at least 2000 BC. It originated in Siberia or North America, where indigenous peoples used dogs to pull loads across snow covered terrain. Although still used for this purpose, in more remote areas in and around Canmore, dogsledding is purely a recreational occupation. An enjoyable and unique experience for all the family or an adventure for a group of friends. As with most events in the Canadian Rockies the sledding season is February or March most years.
