Everything was wonderful from beginning to end. I can’t really describe how thrilling this dog sledding ride is. The scenery is breathtaking the dogs are beautiful and you can tell they love running. They would often look back at Ethan our musher and bark lets go! Ethan was so knowledgeable about the area and very pleasant to talk with. It was a comfortable activity none of that awkward feeling of is he glad I’m here or does he really want to do this today. You could tell he loves what he does. We ate lunch after the sled ride there and it was so so good!!! We had the buffalo burger. Definitely do the lunch! You have to get the pictures. These are professional shots not you typical tourist photos. My husband and I both agree that we would do this dog sledding again. Thanks Ethan and to all the folks for the fun and a memory that will last a lifetime. If you are thinking about doing this. Stop thinking and book it!!!! It’s worth every penny!!!!

We had the most breathtaking experience today at Krabloonik dog sledding with Aiden as our musher. The scenery is amazing and the dogs were so excited to be pulling that sled! Aiden was so nice and knowledgeable about ALL the dogs, not just the ones pulling our sled. There are many and he knew each of their names and could tell us about any one of them, very impressive and we know he cares deeply about the dogs as they all do. All of the other mushers, musher crew and restaurant crew were so polite and made us feel so welcome. The Krabloonik restaurant has great food also.

Most of our ride, we were at the edge of the cliff. A part of our sleigh was hanging over the cliff, we very easily could have fallen off of the cliff. I have never been so afraid in my life. I prayed not to have a heart attack. Our dog resting period was supposed to have been at Redic River having a cup of apple cider. We never reached that location. The photographer stood in one spot and took pictures that cost $125, in previous years, the photographer took pictures multiple times at different locations during the ride. This was like night and day from my experience there 3 years ago. I will not be returning. And to the couple that actually went over the cliff, my heart goes out to you. My dining experience was good. The wait staff was accommodating.

We had a Valentines dog sled ride, our musher was Aiden. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and you could tell his connection and love for the dogs. It was gorgeous weather with breathtaking views. The whole staff was friendly and welcoming.

We had an amazing time dogsledding with our two kids. Aidan was a wonderful guide - so knowledgeable about the animals, the landscape, the history behind dogsledding and just overall a great guy. This is a remarkable experience and so worth it!

The thrill of eight huskies pulling us along a mountain trail at twilight , with a personable musher telling tales, topped with a wild game supper, —- all lead to delightful memory!

Very expensive for no sledding. It was very very short...40 minutes but half we were stopping waiting I do not know exactly for what. Then most of the ride is slow because the terrain is not well suited for dog sledding. Even dangerous since you go through some ski areas. Totally over rated for the incredibly expensive price. I was so exited to take my two little girls and it was a rip off. Later when we finished they ask for tips of $300 or more dollars. Ridiculous. Its a tourist trap! Do not go!

We have been dog sledding before with out 5 year old before in several other locations and were excited to try Krabloonik.

The lodge facility is very nice and the waitress was very helpful in getting our little guy a quick snack before the ride.

When we got down to the sleigh, we immediately realized the conditions for the dogs are pretty rough. Our little guy asked "where is the dog's home"? They are all chained up as far as you can see on very short chains with no shelter whatsoever in very harsh weather conditions. I'm not a bleeding heart but this looked like a Humane Society video for a Chinese Meat Farm rather than an ultra expensive experience in Aspen. The dogs looked miserable. From what I understand the previous owner used to kill the dogs when they could no longer pull a sled, so this is a half step up from that.

As for the ride, it is very short (maybe 30 minutes total). The terrain is not very well suited to dog sledding so the musher ends up having to push most of the way. Very slow on the way up, I wasn't sure the dogs were going to make it.

At the end I gave a cash tip to the musher as I have in the past. I get up to the top and the waitress hands me a receipt suggesting a gratuity for the "coordination". Suggested tip was $150. This seems absurd on the fact that the cost is $1000 for 30 minutes. You would think that would cover the "coordination". She seemed irritated when I left less.

I doubt my review will lead to any changes but hopefully will lead the management to consider a long term plan to house the dogs in better conditions and deliver a better experience to the customer considering the cost is at least double that of any other dog sledding operation in the United States.

On a recent trip to Aspen, my wife and I did a morning dogsledding tour at Krabloonik. We were very excited to try dogsledding, since pictures of it have always looked like a lot of fun, and we’re dog lovers. However, after doing the tour, I’m a little torn, because I would say that dogsledding itself was objectively enjoyable, but based on the overall experience and cost (over $700 for two people to do a one-hour tour), I probably wouldn’t do it again or recommend it.

A few days before our tour, Krabloonik sent pre-arrival tips via email, and I definitely recommend following them. For example, they recommend bundling up as if you’re going skiing, which was good advice, because it was very cold on our 9:00 am tour. I was very glad to have worn the warmest clothes we had.

Finding Krabloonik’s location is a little difficult, even though their email gives accurate directions. It’s in Snowmass, just a couple miles past the main areas of Snowmass Village. We were glad that we had our own car to get there from Aspen, but if you don’t have a car, you’ll want to plan ahead for transportation, probably using a local taxi.

When driving in, you get to an area where the main road dead ends, and then have to go downhill from there to get to the parking lot. There is one sign pointing in the correct direction down the hill, but I was confused when it seemed to dead end at some sort of unrelated operations building that definitely looks like you went the wrong way. However, if you keep driving through the parking lot of that building, you’ll finally see a sign and parking area for Krabloonik.

When we arrived, it was fun to hear all of the dogs howling and seeming excited for the day ahead. There are probably over 100 dogs there, so it was quite loud. You’ll also see quickly when you arrive that this isn’t a particularly nice place. I wasn’t expecting anything fancy since it’s an outdoor dogsledding attraction, but the whole compound has a somewhat dirty, unkempt feel to it.

We really try to steer clear of unethical animal attractions after some bad past experiences, so we’re always wary of animal treatment in relation to tourism. That’s not to say that the dogs here aren’t treated well, but it’s hard to know for sure. The dogs seem happy, especially when they get to run, but they’re also chained up and living outside, and there are a large number of them. I understand that this living situation may be typical for dogsledding dogs, but it just gave me a slight bit of pause since it’s not what I’m used to. I also know many of the dogs are rescues, which is great, and our musher clearly cared about his dogs and their well-being, nutrition, and exercise. However, just looking around when you get there, it’s hard to form a clear opinion on the conditions, and we never got close to where the dogs are being kept to look more closely.

When we went inside the main building, which houses the Krabloonik Restaurant, I immediately noticed how lax they are with Covid protocols. A staff member was sitting just inside the door and did not have a mask on, although he quickly tried to put one on once we were already passing him. This was a recurring theme during the day. Although our musher wore a mask during most of the ride, and other staff members did inside, many staff members didn’t appear to be wearing masks at all, even when they approached the sled at a couple points at the beginning and end of the tour.

We had to fill out waivers and watch a video about dogsledding prior to starting the activity. They also asked if we were interested in having photos of us taken during the ride, which would be $85 to have digital copies of all of them. Although it was pricey, we decided that we might as well get the photos, since we had already spent so much for the activity. The photos actually did turn out great and were easily AirDropped to us right after the ride, so I don’t regret paying for those.

Once we were done with the introductory portions, we went back outside and met our musher, Josh, who was very nice and did a great job. He packed my wife and I tightly into the sled (which is not very comfortable), and we were off. A team of eight dogs (a couple huskies, as well as a variety of mixes that are well-suited to dog sledding), pulled us along, while Josh introduced the activity and course we would be taking. Our job was basically just to stay seated and enjoy.

The overall trip takes a little over an hour, and it’s essentially exciting for the first 10 minutes, where you go downhill the whole way. This is where the dogs can really run and pick up speed, and also when all the photos are taken. Once you reach the bottom of the hill, there’s a break, where the dogs can rest, and there was a fire going down there with hot chocolate and cider ready for us. It was a pretty spot to stop for a little bit and stretch our legs. That was also our chance to pet the dogs, which was a lot of fun, since they were all so loving and energetic. Throughout the tour, Josh also gave us a lot of background about each of the dogs. He said that he is responsible for the care of these specific dogs, and it was clear that he cares about them and knows them very well.

After the break, the tour is really not that exciting. You basically just re-trace your path back up the hill to the beginning, and there’s nothing fast-moving about it. This portion was a better chance to take in the pretty natural scenery around us, but it took a long time, while cold on an uncomfortable sled. There were also several times we had to stop and give the dogs a break on the way back up. I felt bad for the dogs in this direction, because even though they still seemed excited, it seemed like more of a struggle, and I would honestly have been happy to walk or take other transportation back up so that it would be easier for them. Our musher also got exhausted on the way up and had his mask off for the duration of the trip, which he apologized for and said was because of the exertion required to return. However, it also made me a little uncomfortable since you’re in very close quarters during the ride.

I also felt that the path was much less in the “backcountry” than represented online. The area where the tour occurs is on paths on a far side of Snowmass Mountain where ski trails go right by. Although those trails were all closed while we were there, seeing ski lifts and trail markers all around doesn’t exactly scream “backcountry” to me.

After the tour, I made sure to tip our musher. One thing I didn’t like once we stopped back inside was the push for tips. They had us sign a credit card receipt for the ride, which wasn’t really necessary since we had fully pre-paid a month earlier when we booked it. There was no need to have us sign anything more. We were given a restaurant-style receipt with a gratuity line, and suggested tip amounts were aggressively highlighted and underlined at the bottom. I do appreciate that the tip could have been given by credit card, but I felt like the whole charade of having us sign a receipt was to try to push for a really large tip. I was happy to give what I thought was an appropriate amount directly to our musher, which was not as high as the $150 that was suggested on the receipt based on the overpriced cost of the ride. I’m always happy to tip for good service, but I didn’t like the pushy manner in which tips were requested here, which was in addition to having signs up suggesting that guests leave tips.

Overall, I probably wouldn’t come here again for dogsledding. It was fun and unique to have this experience, and the dogs were so sweet and enthusiastic, especially on the thrilling ride down and during the break. Our musher, Josh, was also really nice and enjoyable to talk to throughout the ride. For those reasons, I’m glad we tried it once. However, I just didn’t think that the short thrill of the ride downhill was worth anywhere near the $700+ for two people. I know that the dogs have very expensive and high caloric requirements, and they only do the rides for a small portion of the year, but it’s still hard to justify the cost based on the overall experience. The place wasn’t very nice, and the location of the ride wasn’t nearly as remote or exciting as I would have expected. They also didn’t seem serious about Covid protocols at all, and the pushiness at the end wasn’t to my taste.
