U-Drive lessons:

We require that guests learning the sport take at least two lessons. The first lesson will educate you on all of the functioning parts of the team; you will ride in the sled and get a sense of the trails' terrain, the speed of the dogs and the feel of the sled. During that lesson you will have opportunities to ride the runners. On the second lesson we will give you your own team to drive with the background you gained in your first day's experience. You will drive either a 3-4 dog team behind the guide's lead sled, or a larger team with your guide riding as your passenger. No guests are allowed to ride in sleds driven by our students; those passengers can ride in the guide's lead sled. The two lesson series may be done on consecutive days, or on a single day with a mid-day break for lunch.

For those coming with their own dogs to learn the sport we require two lessons, and we highly recommend three. The first day is a real acclimating experience for your dog. By the second day they are often just beginning to catch on. It is on the third day that we generally see things really "click" for those dogs who do show potential for success.
