Yellowstone Dog Sled Adventures (YDSA) was founded with one vision in mind: to create the worlds best dog sled tour company! With trailheads near Big Sky Resort, West Yellowstone, Montana and Bozeman, Montana, and with a season nearly five months long- in an area blessed with several hundred inches of snow annually, we can make such claims- we invite you to come see for yourself.
