Build your own plastic trail toboggan and runnered sled, and make your own hand-stitched leather and canvas mukluks during this lodge-based course. We provide the materials and tools.

Spend the days in the workshop working on the projects. At the end of the day, head upstairs to the modern lodge to relax, or head into the woods or into town to explore.

Designed to be a relaxed working environment, our lodge-based programs are focused around getting the projects done.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
