About Us


Cold Fire Creek Dogsledding, was founded by Me, Amanda Sinclair in the winter of 1998. 

I was 22 years old full of adventure. I started with 21 dogs and 3 sleds, all of which I managed, toured and cared for all on my own. I continued to run solo for the first couple years, until it became too much for me by myself. I hired my first dog handler and tour conductor in 2000. 

In 2004 I met my husband, Darin Summerhays. I remember asking Darin what I should do as Cold Fire had reached it’s capacity as to how many guests and tours we could take in a day. 

His answer... “Go Big or Go Home.”
So we did this together! We acquired more dogs, more sleds, and more guides. 

In 2011 we expanded once more – and welcomed our first daughter, Jordyn! But we didn't stop there...in 2015 we welcomed our second daughter, Cassidy! 

Now that we have 2 daughters life is fuller and busier than ever before! We have had to hire more staff over the past 8 years to help fill my shoes as I was divided between being a Mother and running the tours and caring for the dogs.

This year Cassidy turned 5 so she is off to school! As blessed as I was to be able to stay home and raise my children, I am very excited to run the tours and be in the kennel full time once again!

See you on the Trail!
