Silvia finished 22nd of 95 mushers and took home $13,300 in the 2008 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Ray Redington Jr assisted her at Shaktoolik as he did several other mushers and won this year's Fred Meyer Sportsmanship Award for his effort. And he still finished 18th overall. That's a true gentle man for yah and yes, they grow plenty of them in Alaska. She didn't race in 2009.

Bio

Silvia Willis, 32, was born and raised in Switzerland. Her interest in traveling and sense for adventures brought her to Alaska for the first time in the fall of 1997. That's also when she was introduced to dog mushing. She says, "Working with animals has always been my passion and after I permanently moved to Alaska, (and married Andy Willis) we started building a small dog team." She and Andy own and operate a hunting and fishing lodge from spring through fall and stay very busy with dog mushing in winter. We also make dog sleds and mushing equipment.
