The 2014 Iditarod Race is following the traditional Iditarod Trail leading through the Alaska Range. Due to the icy conditions on parts of the trail the race committee had considered a different route, but Mother Nature has provided a little dusting and we hope a little more snow will make the trail safe for everybody. It is supposed to be toughest sled dog race on Earth…
This means we will have 72 mushers, over thousand dogs, and a few hundred spectators at Rainy Pass Lodge in a couple of weeks. We will listen to a different tune than the roaring 600cc snow machines that came through here this weekend for the Iron Dog. To round up the madness, a few selected extreme bikers, runners, and skiers will come by the week after during the Iditarod Trail Invitational.
Looking forward to all the activity, and the return to “normal” afterwards.
