Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Is transportation to Warner Stables provided as part of the package?
    No. All participants will need to meet at Warner Stables for their sleigh ride.
  2. How should we dress for a sleigh ride?
    Since you’ll be exposed to the elements, we recommend dressing to conditions for your safety and comfort (especially if bringing little ones). Even on our more mild days, temperatures can be quite chilly, so hats, scarves, mitts, and more are recommended.
  3. How soon in advance do I need to book?
    We recommend booking as early as possible to secure your spot, especially during the peak season months of December and January. While we always do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible, same day tours may not always be available.
  4. Do you offer any packages?
    Yes! Sleigh rides are included in many of our winter activity packages.
