Calling all dog lovers! Are you looking for something to do in the winter to exercise yourself and your dog? Have you tried skijoring? Skijoring can be fun for skiers of all skill levels and all breeds of dogs. Well, maybe not a Chihuahua!
The Folk School is happy to partner with the Alaska Skijoring and Pulk Association (ASPA) to present ASPA’s long-running annual Skijoring Beginner’s Clinic.
In the morning, attend a 2-hour classroom session (without your dog) and learn about the necessary equipment for skier & dog, training tips, and trail etiquette. In the afternoon participate in a half hour “on-snow” session (trail conditions and weather permitting) to practice skijoring with your dog. Experienced skijorers and dogs will be on hand to help out.
Pre-registration is required! The cost includes an annual membership in ASPA. Attendance at the classroom session is required to participate in the “on-snow” session.
Classroom Session: Saturday, November 17, 2018, 10 am – 12 pm at The Folk School. Humans only!
On-Snow Session: Saturday, November 17, 2018, one half-hour time slot between 2 pm – 4 pm, at Creamer’s Field. Signup for time slots will occur during the classroom session. Bring your dog!
