START IN MUSHING: I am a second generation musher and have been running dogs my entire life. My parents started mushing when I was born and I have had a love for the sport and dogs ever since.

MUSHING HIGHLIGHTS: Competing at the La Grande Odysee in France was the experience of a lifetime. Traversing the French alps with mushers from all over the world and my team is something I will never forget. It was a lot of hard work but it gave me a lot of appreciation for our mountains and hills in the USA which fail to compare to their mountains that reach beyond the clouds.

FUTURE GOALS: My father and I hope to compete in the Iditarod together one day. This race will be a step in the direction towards that dream.

OCCUPATION: Pet food Quality & Food Safety Manager

SPONSORS:

START IN MUSHING: I was looking for a running partner in 2009 and ended up with an Alaskan Husky. The rest sort of materialized the way you would imagine: a) anthropomorphic feelings that your dog is lonely and needs a buddy, b) the purchase of a second sled dog that you let your first dog “pick” c) the realization that your dogs aren’t tired after running with you and you need to reconsider their exercise plan before they ruin all the furniture, d) quit your job and move to Montana because ‚”sled dogs will get to be sled dogs.”

MUSHING HIGHLIGHTS: To be determined …

FUTURE GOALS: Also to be determined…

LEAD DOGS: Amber, Kaltag, Brewtus

OCCUPATION: Server

SPONSORS: KDM McCall, McCall Pet Outfitters and Supply

START IN MUSHING: My love of animals and the outdoors came together perfectly when I stepped on the sled for the first time. I grew up in Vermont reading the books of Gary Paulsen and participated in a wide variety of winter sports. During a summer spent in Alaska, I became more educated about the sport of dog sledding and its history. Running with the dogs has taught me how to be a more patient, resilient, and compassionate person.

MUSHING HIGHLIGHTS: Every moment I’m out with the dogs is a highlight. In winter 2020 I finished the American Dog Derby race in Ashton, ID during a blizzard where the roads were shut down. My team came in happy, strong, and I was so proud of them.

FUTURE GOALS: My goal is to get our team running The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

LEAD DOGS: Dot and Crystal

OCCUPATION: Girl Scout Summer Camp Kitchen Manager

SPONSORS: Teriyaki Madness

START IN MUSHING: went to McCall winter Carnival when I was a kid in the late 90’s and got to do a small dog sled ride. That is when I started saving to get my first Husky. I became more interesting when I went to college and was able to handle at the Iditarod in 2003. By then I was hooked and started doing a lot more research on mushing. It was not until 2015 that I got my first three huskies and started mushing and racing.

MUSHING HIGHLIGHTS: Run in the Bachelor Butte Dog Derby ‘19 and getting 3rd place in the stage race, that same year my son ran their junior race (1.5 mile) as his first ever and he also got 3rd place. Training with my kids is some of the best times ever. my favorite part of mushing in the woods is watching and hearing the snow fall from the trees.


FUTURE GOALS: To run between 500 and 1,000 miles of races in one season, my personal Iditarod. Maybe one day enter in the Yukon Quest.
