Question by Mosh: Why is dog sledding still used a mode of transportation today?
Even with the use of snowmobiles, why is dog sledding so important?

Where is dog sledding most used today and what is its practical purpose over other modes of snow travel today? (ie. is there actually more of an advantage to using dog sleds over a snowmobile or another motor-driven means of travel?)

If that is the case then why do people still use bikes as a use of transportation? Some people may find it fun, exhilarating… Just because as times have progressed and gotten easier doesn’t mean we have to stop using ways of older times, although hair straighteners are a lot more convienient than an iron but look at people that hunt, (I object to it) they still do it even though they could go to a supermarket and buy it for themselves. And I actually think there is a slight advantage to using a dog-sled to a snow mobile, they can break down, you have a whole pack of dogs incase one gets hurt so you can still go on, something breaks in a snow mobile you might not be able to fix it.
