This 1,610 kilometers cross-border run between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska or vice versa is called the toughest sled dog race in the world. Teams must negotiate icy slopes, windy side-hills, natural moguls and fearsome summits in white-out conditions with fierce winds and temperatures dipping to -60°C. Approximately thirty teams participate in the 10- to 14-day race.
