Foothills in winter – horse-drawn sleighs

Posted on: Nov 19, 2020

You won't be able to wipe the smile from your rosy cheeks or get that Christmas jingle out of you head once you climb aboard a horse-drawn sleigh.

The Foothills in winter is magical and what better way to spend a chilly afternoon than dashing through the sparkling, snow-softened hills. The adventures don't stop once the snow flies. In fact, Old Man Winter just makes the Foothills that much more appealing. Bring your family and make some new winter memories.
