The 2011 IPSSSDR continues this week through Kemmerer/Diamondville, Evanston, and Lyman/Mountain View, Wyo., before arriving in Park City, Utah, for the final stage and awards ceremony on Saturday, February 5. With its unique "stage stop" racing format, the IPSSSDR stops in a different community each night, allowing Wyoming’s host towns to show their hospitality: Festivities for mushers and spectators alike include pancake feeds, dog parades, banquets, carnivals, and snowshoe softball.
