Marcelle Fressineau, 60, was born in Switzerland. She attended college in Switzerland, where she received a degree in math and science, and worked there as an adventure outfitter for 12 years. She began mushing in 1988 and starting thinking about the Iditarod when she saw a video in 1991 “with these beautiful Alaskan Huskies.” She moved to Whitehorse in 2007 because it was “a good place for dog mushing.”
