PSDSA Mission
Our mission is to encourage and promote the sport of running sled dogs and skijoring,
both recreationally and competitively, by providing education on dog care, equipment, and training.
Our focus is directed toward the safe and humane use of dogs in harness, good sportsmanship, and camaraderie among those who participate in meetings, demonstrations, gatherings and races.


The Pacific Sled Dog and Skijor Association (PSDSA) was formed in 2007
by the merger of the Southern Oregon Sled Dog club and the Cascade Skijoring Alliance. 

Did you know that PSDSA sponsors the Chemult Sled Dog Races, Bachelor Butte Dog Derby, Mush without Slush and the LaPine Mushing Weekend?  Do you want to learn more about the sport or share your wealth of information and experience? Interested in keeping sled dog racing and skijoring a vibrant sport in Central and Southern Oregon? Come be part of the PSDSA.

LaPine Mushing Weekend  November 9-12, 2018

Happy Fall!  The trails are finally getting enough moisture to run dogs!


We’re making some changes to the La Pine Mushing weekend this year due to the growth of the event. We’re asking for registration and charging $15 per team to cover expenses.  We’ll be putting a porta-potty at the running site and working on getting a better plan for parking.  We’ll be having a mandatory musher meeting Friday evening at 7 in the community hall or Sat morning at 7AM at the parking area.  The Park has asked us to apply for a permit and I’ll be meeting with them to determine if any trails are off-limits.  Most likely these would be the hiking trails so we don’t have conflicts with the many other park users.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in La Pine!
