I just applied to work at a dogsled kennel in Alaska that my friend told me about. He said there were tons of opportunities up there for stuff like that. Does anybody have any suggestions or links? I'd really like to do anything in the arctic or antarctic.

I graduated college in May 2008 and I am about finished with a year teaching English in Korea. I was interested in this dogsledding thing because the season is April to May, basically right after I'm done here.

I used to work onboard cruise ships. Subsaquently, I spent a lot of time in Alaska and we went on the dogsledding tour where the dudes and gals were handling the dogs during the summer season.
Our guide loved it. They would actually live on a glacier and hang out and work the dogs all day and take tourists out on rides. The guy was so sunburned on his face as well. It was crazy.

I say go for it. It sounds awesome.
