Fantail Farm Sleigh Ride Horses

Crystal Mountain | Thompsonville

A horse-drawn surrey ride is a fan favorite at Crystal Mountain. What’s a surrey, you ask? It’s an old-fashioned carriage, and at Crystal Mountain, it means you have a roof over your head for the journey! Glide through the snow behind a team of Belgian horses, and cap off the evening with a complimentary hot cocoa and campfire. Surrey rides are approximately 20-25 minutes long. They are $10 per person and free for children under the age of 12 months. View the schedule and book your ride here
