Tough Sledding Out of Rohn May Get Easier in 2015 Iditarod

Thursday, December 4, 2014

In 2014, half of all the mushers who scratched in the Iditarod did so in Rohn, and more suffered damage to their sleds or themselves.  Next year, with a quarter-million dollars worth of trail work, and a little help from Mother Nature, Iditarod officials hope that number will be much lower.  KTNA’s Phillip Manning has more:
