Hello Dog Lovers,
yes, it’s time to kick off the season by waxing the skis and getting the sleds out for the DPSAY Twister Race Series!!! We all have been waiting for enough snow, and there finally is enough on the Copper Haul Road.
When: Sunday, December 11th, 2016
Where: Copper Haul Road trails – Turn left off the Alaska Hwy (direction Porter Creek) past Fast Gas onto Fish Lake Road. Go up Fish Lake Rd for about 4 km, it’s on your left!

10 miles: 6-8 dogs Sleds / 2-4 dogs Skijoring

Kids Dash – free and just for fun!! DPSAY will help with a dog and a sled, if you don’t have any. CHILDREN MUST WEAR A HELMET!!
The longer distance category is the competitive race, where timing and placing applies.This category is recommended for experienced mushers/skiers and experienced dogs!
The shorter distance is the RECREATIONAL category. We will focus on a non-competitive approach, which means NO TIMING and NO PLACING applies. The focus is on trying a new sport with your dog (any breed!!), practicing, meeting new dog lovers and having fun without worrying about competitive dogs and mushers/skiers! (We only keep track of times for your personal interest.)
