Biography

Ed Hopkins, 54, was born and raised in Quebec, CANADA. He says he left there in 1974 to look for “greener pastures.” He first became interested in dog mushing while watching the first Yukon Quest finish in Whitehorse. After that he broke trail between checkpoints and worked as a handler for Iditarod veteran, Harry Sutherland. He got his first team in 1987 and has been mushing since. For the last 35 years, he has been a landscaper as well as a dog musher. Ed is married to Iditarod veteran, Michelle Phillips and they have one adult son, Keegan. Ed lists his hobbies as cars and classic trucks and hunting.
