Our sleigh was pulled by horses to a cabin where we had a wonderful steak dinner. This was a great wholesome family experience. The food was excellent. After dinner, everyone got a chance to rope a “calf.”

I took two teenagers and 8 year old for horseback riding. It was fantastic. Our guide was very helpful and encouraging to my apprehensive 8 year old. We saw beautiful scenery and had such a peaceful ride through the snow. I would definitely return.
