One of the world’s top sled dog races kicks off on January 25th in Jackson. The International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race is in its 18th year, and for the first time, contestants will travel through four states: Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Utah. It will take them more than a week to cover the 425-mile course.

Race Director Frank Teasley says it’s one of the most competitive races in the world.
