Student-built sleds ready for snow in Minto

The students of Minto School wanted to learn how to build a sled, so A-CHILL signed on long-distance dog musher and sled builder, Cody Strathe of SQUID ACRES KENNEL to teach a class.  With the help of school teacher Scott Brucker, they made a plan to build three toboggan-type sleds.

Last spring, students learned about sled design; they cut and prepared to wood for parts and bent sled runners. This fall the students cut plastic and learned to assemble a sled. They finished the sleds in November just in time for snow!
