HuskyWorks Mushing Co.

HuskyWorks’ kennel is made up of all purebred siberians, each with a very unique personality. HuskyWorks spends as much time with the dogs on the trail as they can, running almost daily most weeks. They will run during daylight hours as well as night adventures with high powered headlamps, or when possible by moonlight.

Viking Nordic Center

In nearby Londonderry, beautiful wind through old woods, past classic Vermont scenery, around a busy beaver pond, and along-side the West River.  Terrain is mixed from easy, short wooded loops that keep skiers out of the wind and near the ski center to longer treks out to picnic tables placed at scenic vistas.
