The two most popular sledges for dog sledding are the standard lightweight model on the left and the eight-foot freighter on the right. The hefty freighter can haul 500 Pounds of cargo and a musher, but requires the pulling power of at least five strong sled dogs. Both snowriders are equipped with front bumpers (called "brush bows" by sled drivers).
