The Trappers Trail 2016 dogsled race got underway today with a record
number of team entries. Chatted to a local teacher who’s a musher and he
says “we talk for half of the year about who is going to win!” A very
exciting and noisy event that was even being filmed by the BBC this year.
Our North Pole team remain positive and busy. Went for a ski without the
pulk sled and fair zoomed along! No news on the runway but many are taking
this as a good sign. We also have 54 polar marathon runners in town and the
Oslo Symphonia so hotel rooms are getting harder to find!
