Cobble Beach event features skiiers pulled by dog teams - Owen Sound Sun Times - Ontario, CA

"A new dogsledding and nordic skiing event at Cobble Beach next month is likely the first in Canada to host a nordic combined competition, event Chair Sasha Fernando said Friday.

Participants will ski behind a sled, or pulk, pulled by two dogs for part of the race, which also includes skijoring. The Norwegian term describing a person pulled on skis by dogs means 'ski driving,' Fernando said."
