Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter and Big Sky Resort are hosting the tenth annual Snowshoe Shuffle, Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 5:30pm at the Madison Base Area of Big Sky Resort.

The fundraiser for the Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter features a torch-lit snowshoe course, dinner, and live music with proceeds benefiting the homeless animals at the shelter.

Registration for the event is $25 for adults, children 10 years old and younger are free, and includes dinner. Participants will receive a goody bag from Dee-O-Gee, and can rent snowshoes from Northern Lights Trading Company at no cost. Dogs are welcomed.

New this year will be local mushers teaching the basics of skijoring with your dog. A skijor course will be set up with weighted sleds and harnesses to test the dog’s ability to pull a sleigh.

Tickets are available at the Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter, both Dee-O-Gee locations and at the door.
