DOGSLED CONSTRUCTION


At Mahoosuc, we build our own dogsleds for use in our guide service. Over the years, we have had the good fortune of learning the craft from Ed Moody, who was a master sled builder, and Pauloosie Kooniliusie, an Inuk Hunter from Qikitarjuap. All of our sleds use traditional joinery and lashings for flexibility and strength. We can help you build a toboggan or basket sled for travel by dog team or a quamatik for hauling freight with your snow-machine. Click here to download a PDF of the various sled options and prices. Sled building workshops vary from 4 to 8 days in length depending on the size and type of sled. Contact us for scheduling a workshop in the spring, summer, or fall.
