Due to popular demand, Candle Creek Dog sledding will be adding an additional daily trip to their schedule for the 2012/2013 season. A family-run operation, Tim and his wife Kerry will be offering a total of 6 trips into Big White's stunning backcountry. With only one sled per tour, Candle Creek ensures an intimate, hands-on experience for guests to experience the sport as well as spend quality time with the dogs.

A leader in the industry, Candle Creek helped write the legislation for the new BC Sled Dog Code of Practice that ensures proper treatment of the dogs. The code will be in full compliance at Candle Creek well before operations next season. In addition, Candle Creek spearheaded the formation of the Professional Mushers Association of BC, a society formed of commercial dogsled operators interested in improving the perception of dog sledding in general through proper care and public education.
