All Skijor Clinics have passed for this season, check back next season for new class offerings.
Skijoring is an excellent way to exercise and enjoy the the outdoors with your pup in winter! We've had a whole range of dogs enjoy the clinic - from a 20 lb Corgi to a 140 lb Bernese Mt Dog.
Comments from recent participants were, "This was fantastic, so much fun!" Experience with Nordic skiing is recommended. Your provide your ski gear and dog, the skijor gear (dog harness, tug line, and human belt) is included in the clinic fee. Class size is limited, so don't procrastinate! You will also need a SnoPark Pass and Groomed Area Permit to display in your car.
Skijoring is more than a great way to exercise yourself and your pet, for some people the sport becomes an unrivaled passion. Here is a great video of how far you can actually go in the sport. You can read more from our local Skijoring enthusiast Dan Hanks in a SNSA blog post.
We're delighted that a local skijor team will represent the US at the IFSS (International Federation of Sleddog Sports) World Championships at Haliburton, Ontario, starting January 24th 2017!
Dan Hanks and his dogs practice frequently on the Mt Spokane State Park Nordic trails. See link below.
Lucky, Louie, and Dan will skijor 9-mile races in each of a 2-day competition. Mountain Man and Dan will compete in a 1-day 7-mile race.
