Our Mushers

Long dark nights, snowed in roads, one trail shared by snow mobiles - it's just another evening for those who live and run dog teams in the northern parts of our continent. For those who are passionate partners of dogs and live for the proximity to nature, it doesn't get any better than being a long distance musher.

Head-Lites is very proud to sponsor a select group of mushers each year as we armchair mush along side the world's toughest athletes. You can join them too by liking their respective Facebook pages to keep up to date with how each team is doing! Here's are some of our mushers, present and retired!


Aliy Zirkle


Aliy Zirkle of SP Kennel is one of the most recognized names in the mushing community as a sportswoman, champion, and ambassador into the world of long distance mushing. We are stoked to have Team Red running GREEN Head-Lites!






Rob Cooke


    Rob Cooke of Shaytaan Siberians and his wife Louise are living their dreams that began with a husky named Flint in England. Moving across the Atlantic to Nova Scotia, the pack kept chasing the white stuff to Whitehorse, Yukon. You won't miss this electric BLUE Head-Lites team!






    Lisbet Skogen Norris 


    Running a team of Siberian Huskies from her family kennel, the oldest Siberian Husky Kennel in the world, Lisbet Skogen Norris is a musher that will inspire and fuel anyone's passion for dogs and the great white north. Hailing from Willow, Alaska, Lisbet and Team Anadyr are in PINK Head-Lites!   






    Karen Ramstead


    Canadian musher Karen Ramstead of North Wapiti Kennels is a renowned figure in both the racing and judging side of premier long distance mushing across North America. Karen runs a rainbow team of Head-Lites (as you can tell from the beautiful image above)!







    Christina Gibson (Jr. Musher)


     Young Christina Gibson of Whiteout Racing Kennel in rural Washington is one to watch as she paces her way into the world of long distance mushing with her team of Alaskan Huskies. We're keeping an eye on this one as she races in BLUE Head-Lites!
