Sled Dog Race

Well, here we go again with the Teton Valley Great Snow Fest! This event gets better every year and this time, I’m actually a part of it, as opposed to being just an observer with a blog and a camera.

My employer TRPTA was asked to provide a shuttle service on Saturday the 30th out to the Eukanuba dog sled race at the west end of Packsaddle. Our boss Amanda has been working with Doug Self (Driggs Community Development Director) and now Karen and I will be running the shuttle service out to the races. We’ll start at 8 am and run until 1 pm, starting from the Targhee shuttle pickup spot by the Community Center, out to Packsaddle (W 4000 N) and N 9000 W, and back. We’ll be running two busses with a half hour interval if necessary.

I used my mapping program Juhnk to determine the route and it equates to 12.6 miles (9.35 raven miles) and twenty minutes each way.

Here’s a Google map of the drop:

Here’s a Bing map:

The Eukanuba Stage Stop Sled Dog Race is a big deal and the Driggs Race is an important leg. This event is part of the Great Snow Fest, presented by the Teton Valley Foundation, and will take place over the next couple of weeks.

Here’s Doug’s press release:

Come ride with Karen and I next Saturday! The cost of the ride is on the house…
