The 2020 Pedigree Stage Stop Dog Sled Race begins this weekend with a ceremonial start in downtown Jackson, and the first stage is Alpine.
The event stages will take place in Pinedale, Kemmerer, Big Piney, Lander/South Pass, Teton County, Wyoming, and Driggs, Idaho.
Fremont County’s stage happens on February 5th at the Louie Lake parking lot on South Pass. Last year, the race was held on the Loop Road at Sinks Canyon State Park, but there won’t be enough snow to race there again this year. A meet-and-greet opportunity happens in downtown Lander in the evening on February 4th as fans can meet mushers and dogs on Main Street.
2020 marks the 25th year for the race and $165,000 in prize money is at stake.
