Michelle Phillips of Tagish Lake Kennels, YQ450 musher, came flying into the Braeburn Checkpoint on Saturday, February 11th at 10:58 PM, nearly an hour earlier than officials were expecting mushers to arrive. The low snow levels has resulted in a hard packed, fast trail.
Connor McMahon of Feral Racing was an hour behind, reaching Braeburn at 12:15 AM on early Sunday morning. He described the trail conditions as "perfect" and commented on the great food and volunteer energy at Time Station 1.
Mayla Hill of Elevation Sled Dogs is only a few miles back from Braeburn.
Luc Tweddell is close behind and leading the YQ100 mushers.
