Gerald Azure, an internationally renowned musher, has operated Bluesky Expeditions in Churchill since 2001. Recognized by thousands of tourists and media from all over the world, he has an inherent gift of celebrating his aboriginal culture and sharing valuable “sled dog philosophy” based on kindness and respect for everyone he crosses paths with, especially his dogs.

“A dogsled ride with Bluesky Expeditions can teach you valuable lessons about life’s challenges, and take you on a step back in time,” said Azure, who together with his partner Jenafor Ollander have been working this summer to map out a trail and build kennels for the dogs at Asessippi.

The 28 sled dogs will arrive at Asessippi in early December. Dogsledding for the public will begin during the Christmas season and continue until early March, when Bluesky will return to Churchill for the spring season.
