Just wanted to let all you sledheads out there know that the Trek to Dawson this year is going to be great, with new entertainment and lots of snow! Check out the page www.dawsoncity.ca for more info. If there was ever a year to go, it is 2010!

That depends on the weather. It is a road ride but you can get into severe cold, severe cross winds, huge drifts and big side-hills on hard packed snow. It is a lot of fun but can be dangerous. If you are not a real hot-shot, I recommend that you travel as part of a group of four to six riders.cpw2626 wrote:I heard about this from a friend and it sounds like alot of fun. What is the level of difficulty of the riding?

The trail is groomed from the boarder over to Dawson and from Tok to the boarder is highway with some grooming. I'd say the trail is intermediate, with lots of side boondocking opps. Your reg includes a gas fill up at Chicken. We have brand new entertainment this year and Dawson is stoked to see our buddies from Alaska again. Hope to see you there.
