Call it an epiphany but ever since our first dogsled trip in 1979, winter has been a way of life. We've learned to stay warm, have fun and follow our dreams in some of the world's most wintery places.
1985: Paul Schurke & Will Steger begin plans for a dogsled expedition to the North Pole. Susan Schurke develops her design talents by crafting Eskimo-style apparel from new synthetic fabrics, to be used on numerous expeditions which then became known as Wintergreen Northern Wear.
