#16 — Katherine Scheck from Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, Canada.
Born and raised in the Yukon, Katherine started running dogs in 2011 when introduced to skijoring. In 2012, she bought a litter of pups — the six-and-a-half-year-olds in this year’s race team are from that litter. Katherine lives near Whitehorse with her 5-year old daughter, 3-year old son and 27 Yukon huskies. In 2018, she got the “Stage Stop bug,” and when new changes were announced, she knew she had to sign up. She and her dogs are excited to “gain a bunch of experience this season and to have the opportunity to be rookies racing amongst the best mushers in the world.”
