Mammoth Dog Teams and Owner Jim Ouimet are now offering overnight dog sledding and camping into the Eastern Sierra Backcountry. Each overnight trip is a unique HANDS-ON experience tailored to the individual's skill level. Participants are given their own dog team, sled/cart and camping gear.

Upon arrival at camp you may decide to choose from a variety of activities. Snowshoeing, skijorring and cooking classes are offered along with short dog sledding side trips. Jim also provides expert and knowledgeable instruction in winter survival techniques and dog care.

You will be expected to feed, water and care for your team of dogs while on the trip, as instructed by your trip leaders.
