We enjoyed our time at Six Heart. We did think we would be Dog sledding through some scenic terrain but it was only in a big field. We still got the experience and we loved crew and dogs. Our guides were soo nice and even took us to the back pen to see the puppies since they didn't have a crew right after us. Completely made us feel at home. We enjoyed the old cafe and the sleigh ride afterwards as well.

Dallen was our tour guide and was fantastic!!! He picked us up from The CloudVeil and within minutes we saw tons of elk, moose, bison, big horn sheep, eagles and even a coyote! What a wonderful time and the Comoany Busch Buck was fantastic 10 outta 10 reccoemen
