Susan Butcher

Be sure to visit the Susan Butcher Gallery located at Steamboat Landing. There you will see many of Susan's trophies, awards, photographs and personal mementos. You will also have an opportunity to take a photo with a sled that Susan used to win the Iditarod.

Visit the home and kennels of the late four-time Iditarod champion Susan Butcher, as we pass Trailbreaker Kennels along the Chena River. Learn first hand about kennel life and the challenges that go into making a champion dogsled team. Susan's husband Dave Monson, a champion of the Yukon Quest, or a senior handler shares stories of life in the dog yard and on the trails, as puppies play in anticipation of joining the team.

Susan and her husband Dave Monson ran in and won almost every major dog sled race worldwide. Additionally, Susan accomplished many challenges never before attempted, including taking a team of dogs to the summit of Mount McKinley! You will get a chance to see her Iditarod champion dogs in action and meet them up close as you hear more about dog mushing.
