Husky dog rides

chamonix ski holiday, chamonix winter holiday, husky sledging

Booking a ride on a husky sled is one of the most popular non-ski activities among our guests. Everyone in your group will leave with great memories of a magical experience of being pulled through the snow fields of La Vormaine or Les Praz on this traditional mode of transportation.

Each session lasts for around one hour, which includes time for a safety briefing and photos with the dogs at the end. Adults and children over 8 years old can drive their own sleds (max. 7 drivers per session). Even children under 8 years old won’t miss out, as they can ride along with the guide. The musher can carry 1 adult or 1 adult and 1 child or 2 children, as long as both passengers weigh under 80kgs total. (max. 1 passenger sled per session).

No experience is required, just hold on tight and prepare to mush!

Enquire with the Resort Team about evening husky sledding too, ideal for groups of skiers who don’t want to miss time on the slopes but still want to experience this traditional activity.


Typical prices

Adult driver: 75€ per person
Passenger sled (1 adult or 1 adult & 1 child or 2 children, both passengers must weigh under 80kgs total): 90€ per passenger sled
