Description

If you’re looking for a fun-filled family activity, bring your four legged friend out to Arrowhead Provincial Park this winter and try Skijoring!


Skijoring involves a cross-country skier providing power with their skis and poles, while a dog provides a little additional power by pulling ahead. It's a blast!
