Biography

Linwood Fiedler, 64, was born in Vermont. He received his BSW at Carroll College in Helena, Montana.

He began mushing in Montana in 1997 and moved to Alaska “to race the Iditarod and raise my family” in 1990. He has run 23 Iditarods, placing in the top ten several times and was a second place finisher in 2001.

For the last 18 years he has owned and operated, with his son, Dalton, Alaska Heli-Mush, Inc., an exciting glacier sled dog tour business on the Juneau Icefield .

He is also the co-founder of Arctic Paws for Service, a service dog organization assisting Alaskan families experience the healing powers of service dogs.

Linwood says, “Mushing is what surrounds our life at the Fiedler home. I’ve been fortunate to have the support of the best wife and family a person could ask for. After many runs to Nome with the hardships and victories it has brought me, it’s always been the love of my family and the connection I have with my dogs that get me through.”
