Even as the Iditarod approaches, the 17-year-old musher has traded his sled for a snowboard. Behold, "Dogboarding."
"After being on the back of a dogsled for hours on end, you get a little bored," Stitt wrote in an email. "As I'm very athletic, I started trying different things. Like standing on my handlebar of my sled, to snowboarding with 24 dogs."
"I would like to see this become a sport and maybe one day I'll go to Nome with snowboard and dogs," Stitt wrote.
