The 2019 Midwest Sled Dog Symposium


Saturday, September 28th 2019

Blair Braverman and her husband, Quince Mountain, run BraverMountain Mushing in northern Wisconsin. She is the author of Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube and recently finished her rookie Iditarod in March 2019. She is a correspondent for Outside magazine and has written for The New York Times, Vogue, This American Life, and elsewhere. Her favorite thing about mushing is getting to have adventures with her best friends in the northwoods, and she believes in making the outdoors and mushing fun and accessible for as many people (and dogs) as possible.
