Best Training trails in UK open again...

The CSC trails are like no others in the UK .. event/trails or forest enterprise /trails or a few private field with a few miles set up on them are all very boring compared to what the CSC has and have had for over 10years..the sport of sleddog racing has been in the UK for over 30 miles but still they have no structure within the sport to have a dedicated "sleddog trail" ..not one club has the equipment nor the know how to set out a snow trail .. The CSC trails are not the answer ie " dedicated trails" for the sport as we are a business.. but we will be letting clients of our trails this coming winter with top class accommodation deals involved.The trails have been booked already with teams from all over the UK coming to spend 2 weeks running on them.

When it snows in Scotland the sports shuts down ,there is no place to train or the equipment available to set up a groomed trail .it dos not need to ..if you want to try out that new sled or take your dogs away for the weekend to Aviemore and test yourself & team in real snow trails ..stay in a top class resort/spa/swimming pool /cinema..only 5 mins from the trail...the CSC is the answer.

The CSC trails have been used over 10 years to give clients trips & courses (mostly on sleds) and also to train the CSC sleddogs to a very good level..there are more than 60 Gee & Haws..novice to experienced training areas ..they have been set up with the knowlage and expeance of the owners,input from many pro /mushers around the world,they have been used by top mushers not only here in UK but from Jamaica,Austria,USA,N.Ireland, Australia ,Korea....remote cabins/camps... where teams can stop and rest and spend some time on the trail,...take a flask of coffee & lunch,drop lines/straw are provided around the camp areas..enjoy that side of being with your team..if its a hard training trip we have the trails for that also ..the trails sleddog teams encounter on the CSC trails mirror those of the Alps or remote USA..shallow & deep,wide river crossing ,steep drops,there are four separate forest area within the 18 miles circuit,wild life wall to wall,herds of Red deer roam the trails ,and some of the best scenery in the UK all around you ..plus the bottom line trails which are made only for sleddogs.

There are two parking areas for vistors ..one (Scottys Highway) suitable for 4 large vans..the other (High Heather Ridge) has spaces for 6 Vans ..when it snows the trails are with out any doubt the best in UK ..again down to the daily working of the only sleddog centre in UK..the CSC has its own snow mobils & groomers.

*We must state it's up to the CSC who we let on those trails..we run a business.. always have done plus we have *no time for those who have badmouthed our center over the years ..Sleddog enthusiasts always very welcome..others who simply spend there time talking on websites or doing nothing..please don't take offence but there is no place for you here.

As for teams who truly want to train or have a real unique adventurer with there dogs drop us an email Stewartsledk9@aol.com for more details and prices.. a special rate has been set up with The Aviemore Resort Hotel also ..top class parking for dog trucks,nice meal & early morning swim & sauna...beats going to a damp remote forest at the weekend?

Only ATVs & Sleds on CSC trails ..no rigs or scooters.

"Here in the UK we are the only daily working sled- dog centre and have been for the past 10 years.  Trying to give input to the sport in all areas...we support and respect SDAS for being the only Official sleddog club in the UK. We hope you find our trails to be very unique to the UK ...as they have been set up simply for working & training sleddogs...it's as simple as that ..."Alan Stewart...May 2012".
