The Hudson Bay Quest is a wilderness race. It is a competition between the musher, dog team, weather, terrain and other competitors.
You have the possibility of encountering severe weather conditions. Past races have had temperatures of +2 – 5 C with rain to -30 C with 40 kilometer winds equalling -45 C. Trail terrain will range from lakes, rivers, tundra and snow roads. Possible snow storms or ground blizzards may stop your progression for up to 36 hours.
The Hudson Bay quest is a race like no other and an experience of a life time in a dog sledding career, but it is not a race to be taken lightly.
