In 2006 Aaron moved to Grande Prairie , Alberta to continue building his lditarod team. Over the next few years Aaron and his dogs competed in numerous long distance races and also operated sled dog tours in Lake Louise and Panorama ski resort. Aaron’s skills with his dogs continued to develop during these years. In addition to running the lditarod 2 more times in 2009 and 2013, Aaron won the 2011 Canadian Challenge 320 mile race in northern SK, also after 5 attempts Aaron won the prestigious International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race in 2013, a gruelling 7 day stage race in the mountains of Wyoming. In 2012 Aaron began managing the Kleskun Hills Bison Ranch, also near Grande Prairie. Soon thereafter Aaron met his wife Eva while racing in Yellowknife in the Canadian Championships. Eva who is from Switzerland was no stranger to snow and competition, Aaron credits his marriage with Eva for taking his professionalism with his dogs to the next level. In 2014 Aaron and Eva re-branded their sled dog team as Elevation Sled Dogs. In addition to racing, Elevation Sled Dogs also offers tours to the Grande Prairie region. Aaron and Eva also began a dog boarding business in 2014 called Elevation Dogs. Currently Aaron and Eva have two children, Clancy and Sunny. After a 5 year absence from lditarod Aaron returned to compete in the 2018 race. Aaron and Eva along with all of the supporters are taking their dogs to a new level. The goal is to be competing at the front of lditarod within the next 3-4 years with the ultimate goal of becoming the first Canadian team to win the toughest race on earth – the lditarod.
