The exciting world of dogsled racing comes to Jackson Hole! Similar to Tour de France, the Pedigree Stage Stop Race stops in a different town each night throughout Wyoming (along with a swing through Driggs, Idaho). The first stage begins right here in Jackson Hole, on January 25!
The event begins at 9:00am in the Deloney Parking lot. Come see the dogs, mushers and vet staff until 1:00pm. Then head over to the Town Square at 5:00pm for the official kick off and watch the mushers leave the chute at 6:30pm for the first stage.
Teams will race 30-35 miles during each stage of this 8 stop race. Teams race on public lands of the Bridger-Teton, Shoshone, & Caribou-Targhee National Forests, competing for $165,000 in prize money & the elusive title of “Stage Stop Champion”.
Racers come from as far away as Alaska to be a part of this amazing event. See who is participating in this years race and learn more about the Main Stage Stop Racers and their teams.
