The Alaska Skijoring and Pulk Association (ASPA) is a nonprofit organization that promotes recreational and competitive skijoring in the Alaskan Interior. Each season, we coordinate more than twenty events, including how-to clinics, fun races, competitive races, and tours. Learn more and join us! »
ASPA is here to help people new to skijoring learn how to enjoy this fun sport safely, and those with experience to find more fun ways to get on the trail with their dogs. Among our many activities are clinics, races, and trail tours.
- Beginning Clinics. Maybe your pampered pet is perfect for skijoring!
- Intermediate and Advanced Clinics
- Fun Races. Everyone gets a prize, every dog a winner!
- Competitive Races for the more ambitious, competitive skijorers
- Explore new Fairbanks trails
- Overnight trips to White Mountain cabins
To stay abreast of upcoming events, talk about dogs and skijoring, have a place to go to report a lost or found dog, or to just hang out with other skijorers, join the ASPA mailing list hosted by Groups.io.
Help us maintain trails for skijoring!
ASPA grooms skijoring trails around Fairbanks, as well as the walking trails around Creamer’s Wildlife Refuge. This takes equipment, gas, and oil, but all grooming is done by volunteers. Please consider making a trail donation to support our efforts! You can pay when you join, by PayPal, or send a check. Thanks!
Please Support Our Sponsors!
Our great sponsors make so much of what we do possible, including all the trail grooming, great prizes for races, and much more! Please thank them early and often! And let us know of other skijoring, skiing, and dog-related companies who should maybe support ASPA!
