Important reminder for mushers resting on the trail

March 7, 2020 | 9:58 pm

Mushers are reminded to move well off the trail when resting underway between checkpoints.

Many mushers chose to rest along the trail this year. Rache Marshall Rita Halvig says they must make sure they get off the snowmobile trail and not rest ON the trail.

When resting between checkpoints, participants must go well off the trail and find a suitable place in order to maintain security. We also encourage mushers to put blinking lights on their sled, visible both from the front and from the back. There are some areas in which there are a lot of snowmobiles operating. We want to avoid accidents between dog teams and snowmobiles, hence this reminder“, the Race Marshal says
