First introduced to dog mushing through Alaska Icefield Expeditions, Aaron guided dog sled rides on the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska for five summers. In 2008, he met Rachael and Jerry Scdoris, and was invited to train with, and handle for Rachael’s 2009 Iditarod. Over the last 13 years, he’s been blessed with many experiences in the world of sled dogs. Jerry and Rachel have been his greatest influence, providing him innumerable resources and opportunities. “I’m honored and proud to be a part of this race as a rookie, representing Oregon Trail of Dreams,” says an enthusiastic Aaron. Please welcome him to the 25th running of the Pedigree Stage Stop Race.
