Dogsledding at Beck’s Kennels

Posted on April 6th, 2011 in Northwest Territories,YouTube by luke

What visit to Yellowknife is complete without a dogsled ride over a frozen lake! This video documents the mushing of our very own team of tournament-level huskies from Beck’s Kennels. Grant Beck is a tournament-winning dogsled musher and a wonderful person to spend an afternoon speaking to. He gave us tips on how to properly mush our sleigh, and even showed us the gear he was getting ready to use at The Diavik 150 Canadian Championship Dog Derby.

When you next visit Yellowknife make sure to visit and book a dogsled ride! If you do, think about doing an overnight one… or, you can even see the Aurora by dogsled!
