Iditarod Trail Committee set to make official relocation announcement Monday
ANCHORAGE – Sunday’s snowflakes near the Skwentna Iditarod checkpoint were a welcome sight.
But were they enough?
With the official start of the Last Great Race just a few weeks away, race organizers must decide whether poor trail conditions warrant moving the race’s start from Willow to Fairbanks.
Race finishers Sam Maxwell and Andy Willis flew a helicopter over the trail to get one last aerial look at conditions before the Iditarod Trail Committee makes an official decision Monday.
