THE WINTERSPORTS EXPERIENCE
Schloss Elmau is the perfect Ski Resort for all those who like to enjoy more than just great skiing, but also great spas, yoga retreats, restaurants, cultural events and programs for kids & teens. While cross country skiing tracks start right in front of the hotel, a 25 minute shuttle will take you to Seefeld in Austria or Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria which have been hosting the Olympics as well as World Championships in Alpine & Nordic Skiing.
Do you find sled dogs fascinating? Then this workshop is perfect for you! You will be introduced to Mushing terminology and learn the most important terms for controlling the dog cart or sled. You start by doing dry runs to get used to the dog sled. Of course you will also learn all about sled dogs and sled dog racing. Then it's time to “mush”: Test your mushing skills and steer the sled dog team yourself! Each participant takes turns learning to drive the team independently, lap for lap. As a perfect culmination to the day, you experience the powerful surroundings of the Bavarian Alps on a hike in the snow. During this hike you and your Husky are connected by a special belly strap – an unforgettable natural adventure. We invite you to experience an exciting day that you will remember for a long time to come. 189€/person for children from 7 years old accompanied by an adult or on their own from 12 years old
