Dogsledding Expedition

This class, a combined offering between COE and Voyageur Outward Bound School is a week-long dogsledding expedition through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. Course components include cross country ski technique, tree felling and fire building skills, sled driving techniques, and dog care and communication. Instructors alternate days blazing trails on skis and driving the sleds. Most nights are spent camping on the frozen lakes of the north country. The trip also includes an intense overnight solo component. Course cost does not include travel, students must arrange transportation to arrive in Duluth MN by 1:00pm on Saturday January 11th, and plan to depart Duluth after 12:00pm on Saturday January 18th.
