Update from the Trail!

Just talked to the crew at Sourdough. Ryne met up with Aliy and Allen on the trail. There is a large group of mushers camped out just as the trail becomes impassable. They are feeding and resting the dogs before heading back. Everyone is SAFE!!!!

The race officials are meeting about how to handle the situation right now. Most likely they will send out snow mobiles to talk to the mushers. These snow conditions are very difficult for snow machines though so it may take a bit to get out to the teams. Dogs and sleds tend to deal with the deep snow better than the heavier machines.

We will keep you updated, but know that everyone is SAFE!
