Matt Hall, 27, was born and raised in Eagle, Alaska on the Yukon River, where he worked his trap line with his sled dogs and guided week long expeditions for his parents’ company. He started mushing when he was just two years old. He moved to Two Rivers, Alaska, to pursue competitive racing and completed his first long distance race, the Yukon Quest, at the age of 22. His kennel, Smokin’ Ace Kennels, sits on a 40 acre parcel of land next to the Chena River. He and his wife, Amanda, maintain their off grid life style by hauling water and firewood with their 35 Alaskan Huskies. Read more here.
