Biography

Scott Smith, 47, was born and raised in Maine. He attended UMO and Unity College majoring in fisheries management. He has worked as a commercial diver, commercial fisherman, hunting, fishing and whitewater guide, outfitter, heavy equipment operator and carpenter. After spending 11 years in Wyoming where he got his start in dog racing, Smith moved his kennel to Willow, Alaska in 2005 and now calls that home. He is a veteran of both the Iditarod and Yukon Quest and is eager to do another 1000 mile race with his RDR kennel mates. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to be getting back on the trail with my dogs and look to learn and improve as always.” When Scott is not building/rebuilding something other than a dog team, he enjoys hunting, fishing and traveling.
