This event was inspired by the Yukon Quest and Iditarod - an annual sled dog race which takes place in Alaska.  The race starts on Saturday January 11th in Samoens and passes through a number of the French Alps ski resorts, before ending in Val Cenis on Wednesday 22nd January.  On Tuesday 14th January a stage of this event takes place in Les Gets.  It's a great spectacle to see as the professional sled drivers race through the late afternoon and evening snow with their team of Huskies on the floodlit course around Les Gets.  The main start/finish is at the Route du Front de Neige.  There will be music and animations, stalls and refreshments all through the area with events and fun for all the family to enjoy.
