This year the opening was amazingly smooth. No problems, always nice. We have good snow coverage, 4-5 feet standing in most areas. The temps have been almost hot for the middle of the Alaska Mountain Range in February! Most years we sit at 30 below zero or considerably lower, that is "normal" temps. This season, we have only seen 30 below on a few occasions. Typical temps have been in the mid-teens, making for long days on the sled possible, and dare I say, comfortable. Snowmachining has been wonderful.
Starting with Jeff King's Denali Doubles Sled Dog Race, the first weekend of Feb., we have been awesomely busy every weekend. Zach is back, Liz just got in from New Zealand, the whole crew is back for more, so to speak. Look forward to seeing you all out here on The Highway, plenty of parking in Paxson, and only a 42 easy mile ride on a fully groomed snow covered superhighway. Call ahead if you feel like coming in on a weekend. Cheers!
