Of course, there's always the more traditional, but no less enjoyable, sleigh riding. Sit back and relax as a pair of horses guides you through an honest-to-goodness winter wonderland of snow-laden evergreens, snow-covered branches, and soaring mountainsides at the beautiful Seven Springs Mountain Resort.
Speaking of once-in-a-lifetime experiences...if you've ever wanted to lead a team of dogs across a white sweep of open territory, here's your chance. Book your reservation in advance to experience dog sledding at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. A team of seasoned sled dogs from the nearby Wildlife Academy will lead the way. All you have to do is hold on and enjoy the cool rush of wind in your face. It's an experience you won't soon forget.
Several parks in the Laurel Highlands have areas designated for sledders. Here are just a few of the places where you can sled.
