It’s the largest mushing event in Washington State, and it’s returning for its seventeenth season January 26-28 in Conconully. Watch dogsled teams from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Canada compete for prizes in three classes:
- 8-Dog Mid-Distance
- 6-Dog Mid-Distance
Races start and end at Peacock Meadows Sno-Park, outside the town of Conconully. Watch the progress of your favorite mushers on a board adjacent to a large community fire and local concession stand near the finish line. Each team’s progress is posted as they enter and exit checkpoints along the route.
Between races, meet with the mushers to learn more about dogsled racing and the dogs. They love to talk about the sport and increase awareness. Kids can also go on dogsled rides.
Volunteers are needed to help at the event. If you’re interested, get the details and sign up here.

Conconully is a five-hour drive northeast of Seattle and eight hours northeast of Portland.
