Biography

Jeff Deeter, 29, grew up in the state of Alaska and began mushing in 2003 for family friends, Frank and Claudia Sihler. After finishing the 2008 Iditarod, Jeff moved to Fairbanks to attend UAF. Although schooling only lasted a semester, Jeff stayed in the Interior for the amazing trails and consistency of snow. Jeff and his wife, KattiJo, now own and operate Black Spruce Dog Sledding, a home-based tour business that introduces people to mushing and sled dogs and the unique lifestyle that surrounds the sport. “The times of sweat and hard work are immediately rewarded when you watch a team of dogs do what they truly enjoy. The satisfaction I get by traveling with my best friends is unmatched by anything in this world.” This will be Jeff’s second Iditarod.
