DOG SLEDDING

Our working Siberian Huskies will entertain and thrill you with their obvious enjoyment of pulling a sled or cart, along with their northern sleddog beauty, smarts and antics.  We believe the total dogsledding experience should not only include exciting rides, but also a chance to see how the huskies live, play and train.  All tours beginning at Mountain Maryland Kennels, LLC will start with a kennel visit along with a presentation of dogsledding tidbits, lore and facts.  Ask a million questions!  Pet the puppies!  Assist us in harnessing the dogs if you like!  Then enjoy a ride (or try driving the rig) on the pristine wilderness trails of Garrett County.  Best of all, we're only about three miles from the WISP Ski Resort!

Ice Skating

The 50’ X 85’ oval Ice Rink operates by running cooling pipes under a floor that are powered by a 100 ton chiller to keep approximately two to three inches of water frozen. A mini-Zamboni® will groom the surface daily for Skaters. (fun fact: The Zamboni® was named after it’s inventor Frank J. Zamboni in California in 1953.) The Ice Skating Rink at Wisp will have the true ambiance of a winter wonderland with benches to rest on, twinkle lights hung, a bonfire area. It is the only Ice Rink in Garrett County.
