Winona Forest is a popular training and racing ground for sled dogs. An area that boasts the most snow east of the Rockies, draws mushers to the forest from the northeast and Canada, and as far as Virginia and the Mid-west. Annual sled-dog races such as the Tug Hill Challenge are held December through February at the CCC Camp in Winona Forest. On any given day in the forest,whether you are skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing or camping (yes, camping...in igloos) ,you may meet with teams of sled-dogs training for these events or just out enjoying their sport. It is an awesome sight that will stop you in your tracks! Please yield their passage ...they are on a mission!You will see many breeds running on the trails of Winona including purebred Siberian Husky.
