Go south on Alaska highway, past the carcross cutoff (do NOT turn onto the Klondike highway). Continuing on the Alaska highway, it is the third road on the left (after the cutoff), called Gentian Lane (green sign). Travel about 2 km on Gentian Lane, look for trail markers indicating a right turn and these markers will lead you to the property of Hans and Susie!

    Do I need vaccinations for Twister?

    Hi Pete,

    Please see Rule #4 under the “Dogs, Handling and Care” section of the Twister Rules that states:
    All dogs entered in the race should have current vaccinations for parvovirus, distemper and current rabies certificates; the musher/driver may be required to present these certificates to the RM or DPSAY Board Member(s).

    Therefore, vaccinations do not have to be done yearly (as they may be valid for longer than this) but must be current.
