Stop #3: Dogsledding Races

On February 10 and 11, don’t miss the 18th edition of the Défi de la Gosford at Mont Gosford, a dogsledding race that promises to be as impressive as it is entertaining. There are lots of other activities to partake in at the same time, including a winter BBQ, inflatable games for the little ones, sledding and guided snowshoe tours. See you there!
