Among a winter wonderland with deep snow and crystal clear air, 140 teams will meet for the International Sled Dog Race.
The track in Kandersteg is actually very popular among participants due to its Nordic character. And in recent years, sled dog racing has established itself in the Alpine region, attracting more and more visitors.
Here are some important terms to remember:
Musher: The person in charge of the sled dogs (they like to answer questions, expect shortly before the race…)
Dog handler: This is the helper of the musher
Trail: Another term for race track
