Biography

Tim Pappas, 26, was born and raised on the east coast and moved to Wyoming after high school, where he worked as a hunting guide and guided wilderness pack trips in the summer and was a ski patroller in the winter. He moved from there to Juneau where he ran dog sled tours on the Mendenhall Glacier. He moved to Big Lake in 2013 to “further my knowledge of sled dogs after running dog sled tours in Wyoming.” While in Wyoming, he says he formed a deep respect and love for the wilderness and the bond between man and beast. He moved to Big Lake to apprentice under four time Iditarod champion, Martin Buser and will be running a “phenomenal team of yearlings.” His hobbies are playing music, hunting fishing, climbing, snowboarding and COFFEE!
